Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology

Uniquely focused curriculum

With the rapid advancement of science and technology in today’s world, every industry needs highly qualified engineers who can keep innovation moving forward. While many universities offer engineering programs, few degrees have focused on developing the practical skills required in an applied engineering environment. Until now.

The B.S. in Engineering Technology emphasizes the real-world application of general engineering principles. Through the use of cutting-edge virtual labs and simulation methods, students will develop the skills to design, refine and apply engineering technologies across a range of industries. You can also customize your degree and shape your future by choosing from these available concentrations:

  • Aeronautical Science
  • Aviation Safety
  • Helicopter Operations and Safety
  • Logistics Management
  • Management Information Systems
  • Occupational Safety and Health
  • Project Management
  • Security and Intelligence
  • Transportation
  • Unmanned Aerial Systems

Offered entirely online through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide, this convenient and flexible degree program will prepare you to put your engineering skills to work in a variety of industries. Research projects, virtual labs and a capstone course will round out your curriculum, ensuring you graduate with the fundamental skills you need to achieve your career aspirations.

The B.S. in Engineering Technology curriculum will also help students prepare for the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Professional Engineering (PE) exam, a critical step for any engineer who aspires to a long and rewarding career. If you dream of developing tomorrow’s innovations with your own two hands, this new online program is designed for you.
