Purdue College of Technology
These Purdue degree programs prepare engineering technologists and specialists who enter the workforce with significant hands-on experience, effective communication skills, and problem-solving abilities.
Nature The program of instruction draws upon some of the technical theory requirements of the engineering profession but contains more courses in technical applications. Many of the courses involve laboratory work.
Emphasis Principles and fundamentals emphasize applied engineering rather than theoretical engineering approaches in the use of rational processes in finding solutions to problems in industry.
Scope The course material falls between the skilled crafts and engineering science, touching on both of these levels. The curriculum contains both practical and theory-oriented courses.
Degree Awarded Purdue University diplomas are awarded, and Purdue University transcripts issued, with Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Graphics Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, Industrial Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, and Organizational Leadership and Supervision.
