School of Engineering and Engineering Technology
Did you know
- Facilities in the School of Engineering
and Engineering Technology include laboratories in such areas as computer-aided
design, computer interfacing, data acquisition, digital signal processing,
and process control.
- The Civil Engineering Technology
faculty offers courses in Seismic Design, Bridge Design, Highway Design,
and Hydraulic Design.
- SEET will be offering a web course on the Itanium microprocessor, one
of the newest from Intel.
- The large dish behind Muscarelle will be used to search for extraterrestrial
- The steel sculpture in front of Muscarelle is used to show civil and
construction engineering technology student various fastening techniques.
- The job market for electrical engineering
and engineering technology graduates could not have been better. According
to the National Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 1.35 million people held
engineering jobs in 1992. BLS expects the employment will continue to expand
through the year 2005. Electrical Engineers with 300,000 jobs followed
by mechanical engineers with more than 200,000 jobs and civil engineers
with close to 200,000 jobs.
- The hottest fields today in science
and engineering are electrical engineering, computer engineering, computer
science, and mechanical engineering. Two studies conducted by Michigan
State University and National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE)
have shown that the hiring of college graduates has been upswing since
1993 and average starting salaries are up too. The average starting salaries
of electrical engineering and mechanical engineering graduates rank among
the top 5 averaging about $39,852 and $38,811, respectively. The demand
for engineering technologist follows that for engineers, although their
salaries are lower by about $5,000.
