The Bioresources Engineering Department offers an undergraduate major in Engineering Technology that is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC of ABET).
Engineering technology is part of the broad discipline of engineering, in which knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences is applied in utilization of materials and forces. Engineering technology requires the application of scientific and engineering knowledge combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities. The curriculum prepares the engineering technologist to make independent judgments and to design and manage systems and components to achieve conceptual goals with consideration of their effectiveness, safety and cost. Close liaison is maintained between the educational programs and employers to give graduates the greatest opportunity for career development.
Within the major in engineering technology, two optional concentrations are available. The natural resources engineering technology concentration includes course work in storm-water management, wastewater treatment systems, water supply and non-point source pollution. The construction technology and technical management concentration provides courses in soil mechanics, storm-water management, wood and steel and concrete and masonry as well as courses in project management and economic analysis. Both concentrations allow the student to focus their studies with more in-depth courses in areas of their interest.
Students who choose the engineering technology major may take all the necessary courses at the University of Delaware or they may transfer appropriate course work from other accredited institutions. Students who wish to have prior course work considered must contact an advisor in the department for a degree analysis.
Computer use for problem solving is important throughout the engineering technology curriculum. Students are urged to have their own computer with spreadsheet and word processing software, and should be able to connect to the University computer network.BACHELOR OF SCIENCE - ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGYBACHELOR OF SCIENCE - ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (NATURAL RESOURCES ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY)BACHELOR OF SCIENCE - ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY AND TECHNICAL MANAGEMENT)MINOR IN ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
