New Engineering Technology (ETEC) Program to start in Fall 2022

Notice to BS Industrial Technology current Students

The CSU Chancellor's office has approved our curriculum proposal for the B.S. Engineering Technology program. The new Engineering Technology program was approved to begin in Fall 2022. The new program will require MATH 2110 (Calculus 1) and PHYS 1560/1570 as prerequisite courses for some junior and senior-level ETEC courses. Once the Engineering Technology program is established and the first group of students graduate, we will seek ABET Accreditation per the ABET accreditation guidelines. Current Industrial Technology students will be able to complete their Industrial Technology degree, or some students may choose to switch to the new program if the Campus and Accreditation guidelines qualify them. Technology Department has worked on major change guidelines from Industrial Technology to Engineering Technology. We have planned informational meetings for our current Industrial Technology majors as follows. We will arrange similar meetings for PRE- Industrial Technology majors later.

Information meeting scheduled for Industrial Technology majors (please note that these are not for Pre-Industrial Technology majors)

Friday, November 5th, 2021 - 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Friday, November 12th, 2021- 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

We will plan additional meetings as needed.  

The following are some resource materials that will provide more details.

  1. Engineering Technology Curriculum sheet

  2. Engineering Technology Major Change Guidelines

  3. Allowed substitutions from ITEC curriculum to ETEC curriculum

  4. Four-Year Road Map for Engineering Technology curriculum

If you have any questions, please contact Technology Department Chair Dr. Rupa Purasinghe
