The Division of Engineering Technology, founded in 1973, stresses the application of current technology to typical industrial problems. The curricula maintain a close relationship between theoretical principles taught in the classroom and their applications.

Engineering technology is a profession closely related to engineering. It deals with the application of knowledge and skills to industrial processes, production and management. Technologists are organizers of people, materials, and equipment for the effective planning, construction and maintenance of technical facilities and operations. Their responsibilities require technical and practical knowledge. Graduates of Wayne State’s engineering technology programs are employed in such areas as manufacturing engineering, engineering production, marketing, maintenance, quality control, product testing, field engineering, consulting engineering, design, and technical supervision.
