B.S., Engineering Technology

The Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Technology (ET) at Goodwin College will prepare you for an exciting career in a variety of design, production, automation, quality, and application-related positions in industry.

The ET program been accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc., the recognized accreditor of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology. Goodwin’s program received an outstanding review, demonstrating our strong commitment to quality education, and was granted accreditation for a full six years, the maximum length of time for which ABET awards accreditation.

With four distinct concentrations leading to different career paths (Electrical, Industrial, Mechanical, and Biomedical Engineering Technology), the ET program clearly distinguishes itself from traditional engineering programs in the following ways:

  • It forms the bridge between the designer and the technical workforce.
  • It places emphasis on the application of theory for solving real-life problems.
  • Its courses are fully integrated with training and laboratory hands-on experience.
  • Faculty members with extensive industrial experience have strong collaboration with industrial partners.

ET Mission
The mission of the Engineering Technology program is to provide contemporary students with an academic foundation and practical education in engineering technology through an outstanding curriculum and applied research program, and the participation of our students in one of the nation's most successful cooperative educational programs.

As the only program of its type in the Delaware Valley and Greater Philadelphia region, the Engineering Technology program provides an integrated educational experience directed toward applying fundamental knowledge to the solution of practical technological problems including product improvement, manufacturing, construction, and engineering operational functions.

As an ET graduate, you will be prepared to bridge the gap that often exists between the engineer/scientist and the technical or production workforce. To do this, the ET program works toward three primary goals:

  • To introduce students to the experimental principles and concepts of engineering technology by applying contemporary skills and knowledge in a variety of positions based on the industry’s needs.
  • To provide students with a strong foundation of engineering best practices and to stimulate students' interest by using a problem-solving approach in state–of–the–art– laboratories.
  • To provide students with leadership, management, communication skills, and professional ethics, serving as a foundation for future development and career success.

As a student enrolled in the full-time B.S. program, you will gain professional experience through a four- or five-year program with a cooperative education experience (co-op). Drexel’s well-respected co-op experiences will give you a unique advantage when you enter the workforce.
