Overview of Programs

The Department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management offers Bachelor’s degrees in the areas of CAD/CAM Engineering Technology, Electronic Engineering Technology and Construction Management. Graduates typically find work at numerous types of Engineering firms. Starting salaries are competitive with other types of Engineering and Engineering Technology graduates.

Mission

The Department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management offers Bachelors and Associates degrees in CAD/CAM Engineering Technology, Electronics Engineering Technology and Construction Management. The student learning experience begins with the integration of pure academics with hands on applied instruction in the form of experiential learning. Students gain a high level of knowledge developing real world solutions for real world problems.

Department Vision

The Department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management aims to produce graduates with a high level of broad, in depth education and skills, needed for gainful, competitive employment, in a high paying/high demand career while landing a competitive starting salary.

Technology Education majors must earn a “C” or better in all courses in their major. All technology majors must earn a “C-” or better in courses required for the major and an overall GPA of at least 2.0. (This program is not currently accepting students)

Students are strongly encouraged to work closely with a faculty adviser and an academic adviser in their major emphasis area, both at initial registration and throughout their program experience.

Department/Program Learning Outcomes

  • Provide high quality undergraduate degree instruction.
  • Prepare graduates to successfully compete for employment on a global level including acceptance to graduate schools.
  • Provide excellent well rounded General Education opportunities that enhance, promote and support ETCM degree programs.
  • Engage in Undergraduate research and other types of scholarly activity including enhancing instructional activities that contribute to the intellectual and professional growth of students and faculty.
  • Create an environment that promotes collegiality and collaboration with students and faculty to enhance the undergraduate experience.
  • Recruit, retain and mentor highly motivated students into programs offered by the ETCM department.
  • Recruit, mentor and retain high quality faculty.
  • Develop and maintain state of the art Electronics, CAD/CAM and Construction Management Facilities.

Other Information

Credit Transfer

Southern Utah University has course articulation agreements with a large number of other schools of higher education in the state of Utah. Students transferring to SUU from any of these schools will be  able to transfer courses taken at any of these schools provided: the courses are equivalent in content and number of credit hours to those in the curricula; a grade of C or better has been earned for the courses. In all other instances, transfer of credit will be determined by the faculty on a case-by-case basis. Transfer students should have completed Trigonometry and College Physics with the Lab by the time they arrive at SUU so they are Calculus ready. If transfer students have not completed Trigonometry and College Physics with the Lab they can expect to take longer than 2 years to graduate.
