Engineering Technology – Environmental Emphasis

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology – Environmental (BSET-E) is a plus-two program that builds on and complements associate degrees earned in a variety of Environmental Science and Engineering Technology areas. Entrance requirements to this program include an associate of science degree in a related technology program with appropriate course work to include physical sciences and mathematics (through analytic geometry with calculus).

As students enter the program, an evaluation of their transcript will be made to determine if additional lower division courses will be required to meet the prerequisites of the program. A program of study can be designed to meet the student’s background and career interests. Students selecting the Environmental emphasis must transfer a course in hydrologic systems or take it while enrolled in the program.

All students must meet the requirements of the institution and the General Education Curriculum (GEC) for graduation. A minimum of 40 semester hours of upper-division courses is required.

Program Objectives

In addition to the learning outcomes within the GEC for the baccalaureate degree, specific outcomes for this program have been established.

Baccalaureate degree graduates should be able to apply the following to the analysis, design, development, implementation, and/or oversight of environmental systems and processes using:

Course outcomes are assessed by exit examinations in each course. Program outcomes are assessed in designated courses.

Careers in Engineering Technology

Baccalaureate degree graduates are typically involved in the analysis, design, development, implementation, and/or oversight of more advanced environmental systems and processes. Job titles of recent graduates have included: Assistant Field Engineer, Environmental Specialist.

Plus-Two Baccalaureate Transfer Options

Students who have completed course work or associate degree programs in engineering-oriented programs at other institutions and wish to continue their studies toward a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering technology may do so. Transfer agreements have been established with regional institutions offering associate degree programs.
