The Technology Department

What Is Technology

And

What Do Technology Students Do?

By Dr. Cliff Mirman

Chair, Technology Department

slide2

What is Technology -

Technology involves the application of Science,

Math, Computer, And Management skills to the

solution of real world problems.

Sounds like the definition of engineering ???

Technology an Engineering are very similar – except:

Technology is based upon applications and hands-on skills, while there is less emphasis on theory

slide3

Technology/ Engineering Relationship

Technology/ Engineering Employment Functions

slide4

What does one study in Technology?

    • Manufacturing Engineering Technology
    • Electrical Engineering Technology
    • Industrial Technology

what do eet met and it majors do during their undergraduate years
What do EET, MET, and IT majors do during their undergraduate years?

Internships and working with industry

Most of the courses which our majors take include laboratory components.

  • Departmental Labs include:
      • Computer-Aided-Design
      • PLC
      • Automation
      • Machining
      • Controls
      • Electronics
      • Circuits
      • Plastics
      • CNC Machines
      • Metal Fabrication and Welding
so what do engineering and industrial technology students do after graduation
So – What do Engineering and Industrial Technology students do after graduation?

Development of Large scale

systems – working with

individuals in other fields

Tires placed on the rim and inflated – GM assembly plant

MET’s and EET’s designed the machinery and software!!

slide11

Heavy Equipment – Development of CNC Lathes and Milling Machines, and develop coding to produce complex parts

MET’s develop

Computer-Integrated-

Manufacturing techniques

slide12

Large CNC

machine development

and

Flexible-Automated

Manufacturing systems

slide13

Robotics

and

Automation

A systems approach

where sensors, PLC’S

Robot, vision systems

and other components

all work together

slide15
