Engineering Technology (B.S.)
Degrees Granted: Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology (BSEET) and Bachelor ofScience in Mechanical Engineering Technology (BSMET)
Minimum Hours Required for Degree: 129 semester hours (Includes approximately 64 semester credit hours transferred with the Associate of Applied Science degree). This minimum may be reduced by transfer credits equivalent to certain major-field requirements.
Admission to Major: Completion of the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Electronic Engineering Technology or Mechanical Engineering Technology from a regionally accredited community college, accredited technical institute, or university branch; or completion of the equivalent to major field coursework normally found in AAS degree programs in Electronics Engineering Technology or Mechanical Engineering Technology.
Advising: Contact the department chairperson. Phone: 216-687-2559
Student Organization: Federation of Engineering Technology Students (FETS), and American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
The Engineering Technology Department offers two degree programs, leading to a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology (BSEET) or Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology (BSMET). These are junior- and senior-year level baccalaureate degree programs; students must complete the coursework equivalent to an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in electronic or mechanical engineering technology from an accredited college, university or technical institute before beginning to complete the upper two-year courses in the program. Qualified Cleveland State University students who major in a discipline other than Engineering Technology may apply to enroll in upper-division courses.
The 2 + 2 program’s primary goal is to provide the student with sufficient skills to obtain immediate employment after completion of the associate degree, while providing a path for furthering education and career opportunities with the completion of the bachelor of science degree.
Engineering Technology students are limited to two grades of D in their major courses to be eligible for graduation.
Students in Engineering Technology may select an option in Robotics requiring them to choose technical elective courses from the list of courses that focuses on that area.
A Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology graduate is qualified to work in positions requiring the application of scientific and engineering knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities.
Cleveland State’s Engineering Technology graduates are employed in a diverse range of industries. Most importantly, the programs prepare graduates to contribute immediately in these industries.
