WHAT IS ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEORETICAL ENGINEERING) technology engineering



In this video I take a closer look into what Engineering Technology programs are and how they differ from theoretical engineering programs. I have an engineering technology degree and am the program coordinator to two engineering technology programs.

You can view the Electromechanical Engineering Technology program at Murray State University here:

If you have a technical Associate’s Degree, you can complete your BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology online. Click here for more information:

  1. Thank you for your video! I am a Senior in college, studying for a BSEET at TESU. I completed the majority of my Electronics classes in person at a Community College, and I’m finishing the rest of my degree online, but my degree also has lab portions. It’s also an ABET Accredited Program. It’s frustrating when I talk to my Theoretical Engineer friends who work in the industry, and they aren’t willing to help me get a job because they think that after my BS I will still be a Technician. Nevertheless, this video is helping to educate people that BSEET and other BSET grads CAN become Engineers. Thanks again for this video!

  2. Great explanation! I just signed up for the BS EET degree at 42! I have an AAS in mechanical design and work in Engineering for large electric motor company and want to expand my knowledge and promote-ability. I was just today trying to explain this degree plan to our teams electrical engineer and the word I was missing was Technologist!! My local University offers both the 2 year and 4 year Tech degree. My company also has full tuition reimbursement so it will be paid for so why not get started. I still have 20+ years to work!!

  3. The community college (closest to me) offers engineering technologist support certification. It also has engineering drafting technology which you can get a certification or AS. I want to go for mechanical engineering. Is taking one of this good enough towards my goal? Hope I made sense. If yes, which one should I go for? I'm considering just going computer science AS,T.

  4. I am going to study advanced diploma of mechanical engineering technology technician ….i want to ask that after completing this …it would help me to get jobs with handsome money ?
    Plz guide me about this

  5. I'm taking Electrical Engineering Technology at a technical school to get an AAS and I would like to transfer to a university to get a BS in either Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering. Would the fact that I'm studying EET set me back from getting the actual EE or CPE degree at a university?

  6. Thank you for this video, i was a bit confused but i now better understand the route id like to take. i think the 2 year associates degree tech road is the way to go for myself. Im very excited to know what I am now working on.

  7. Good Evening! I'm currently in BSMET Accredited 4 year degree program in Houston, TX. I am wondering if you know anyone working as an engineer position here that has that degree. Also which is the best name position to apply for jobs with this degree? Thank you

  8. This is so informative! Thank you!! I am planning to apply to my community college's EET program. It is great for me to hear that students that graduated in EET get hired as engineers. Going to community college will be more affordable for me. I also like more community college because university professors are only focused on research and dont worry about teaching their students. Do you mind sharing which companies hire EETs as Engineers?

  9. Hello, sir! I would like to ask for clarification about Bachelor of Engineering Technology Major in Computer Engineering Technology. How does the aforesaid different from Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and Information Technology? Will I be able to land a programming or any like of jobs under IT?

    Looking forward to hearing from you, sir.

    Thank you!

  10. I’ve been stuck between EET and EE for a year now. I’m comfortable in EET and the work is interesting but I feel I would regret it if I did not go for it in EE. Every one tells me EE degree is better and more respected. I see nothing wrong with an EET degree, it’s my understanding that the 2 degrees make roughly the same money. Help me prof

  11. At my place of work, the vast majority of graduates with an Engineering Technology degree get hired as engineers. However I'm sure, depending on the department, the responsibilities and pay are different. Thanks for the vid.

  12. I’m a mechanical technician at the moment and I want to go back to college to become an engineer, but as you said I love doing hands on work. My buddies tell me to become a field engineer. Is that a certain type of career path or is that just a job position?

  13. Engineering technology is a great choice if you want to start your career after college and not stay in academia. You take the same EIT/FE exam to become a professional engineer

  14. I think it depends where you live. In Canada you can work as a Process Engineer with a Mechanical Engineering Technology diploma which is approximately 3yrs.

  15. Thanks for this! My son has completed 2 years of ME but really wants more hands on work and less theory so he is considering switching to MET or a new Mechatronics program. This is reassuring info in your video.
