What Do Technology Students Do?
By Dr. Cliff Mirman
Chair, Technology Department
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
Technology/ Engineering Employment Functions
-- What are they?
Courses in Electrical Engineering Tech:
Internships and working with industry
Most of the courses which our majors take include laboratory components.
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!!
Heavy Equipment – Development of CNC Lathes and Milling Machines, and develop coding to produce complex parts
A systems approach
where sensors, PLC’S
Robot, vision systems
and other components
all work together
Solid modeling and design
Did you know that we have a web site with all of this info?It even has brochures!!!www.ceet.niu.edu/tech
