Welcome to the Division of Engineering Technology!

We are comprised of multiple undergraduate and graduate degree programs in a wide range of major areas.

We offer four ABET-accredited, 4-year undergraduate degrees plus a few minors. The curricula focus on hands-on learning and real-world applications.

Most Engineering Technology faculty members have extensive industrial experiences, and our graduates are ready to be productive with little or no additional training.

Our graduates' typical job titles are design engineer, application engineer, manufacturing engineer, field engineer, fire safety engineer, industrial hygienist, plant manager, project manager, estimator, and superintendent.


Undergraduate Degrees and Minors

  • The Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) curriculum is nearly identical to the Mechanical Engineering (ME) curriculum for the first two years. However, upper-level major courses are taught with significant hands-on components and real-world applications in mind.
  • The Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) curriculum is based on rigorous math and science courses, and its major courses are taught to be applicable to solve 21st-century challenges in electronics and computer technology.
  • The Construction Engineering Technology (CET) program produces graduates that are highly sought after by the construction industry, and the job placement rate is 100%.
  • The Fire Protection and Safety Engineering Technology (FPSET) program has a long and rich history; its curriculum covers two main areas: fire protection and safety.
  • Minor degree choices are available in four areas: Mechatronics and Robotics, Construction, Safety and Exposure Sciences, and Emergency Management. The Construction Minor, Safety and Exposure Sciences Minor and the Emergency Management Minor are open to students from all majors in the university.

Construction Engineering Technology, BSET

The construction engineering technology program is designed to help students solve problems in the construction industry related to managing the construction process, executing designs of architects and engineers, estimating, scheduling and coordinating projects. This program offers degree options in building and heavy, and a minor in construction

Fire Protection & Safety Engineering Technology, BSET

The fire protection and safety engineering technology (FPSET) curriculum provides preparation for assessing and reducing the loss potential with respect to fire, safety, industrial hygiene, and hazardous material incidents.  This program offers a minor in Safety and Exposure Sciences (SAES). 
Online option available!

Emergency Management, Minor

Emergency management is a fast-growing field.  A minor in Emergency Management will prepare you for careers in the public, nonprofit, or private sector.  This minor compliments a diverse set of majors in each of the colleges on campus. The Emergency Management Minor at Oklahoma State requires three courses directly from the Fire and Emergency Management program, plus six hours that may already count toward your major degree field.

Electrical Engineering Technology, BSET

Electrical Engineering Technology is the applied design, installation, manufacturing, operation and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems. The Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) curriculum provides preparation for outstanding career opportunities not only in the electronics industry itself, but also in many other areas in modern industry that depend upon electronics for control, communications or computation.  This program offers a computer option  and a minor in Mechatronic Engineering Technology.

Mechanical Engineering Technology, BSET

Mechanical Engineering Technology is the component of engineering that specializes in design and application. MET includes the broad areas of mechanical design, mechanical power and manufacturing and offers a minor in Mechatronic Engineering Technology.

Graduate Degrees

We offer graduate degree options including Ph.D. and M.S. in Fire and Emergency Management Administration, MSET with an option in Fire Safety and Explosion Protection, and MSET with an option in Mechatronics and Robotics.

Fire & Emergency Management Administration, Ph.D.

The PhD in Fire and Emergency Management Administration are specialized degrees designed to provide an educational foundation for those who are currently serving or aspire to serve as managers or administrators in the fire service, emergency management, emergency medical services, law enforcement, or homeland security in the public, private, or nonprofit sectors.  Online option available!

Fire & Emergency Management Administration, MS

The Fire and Emergency Management Program is a specialized degree designed to provide an educational foundation for those who are currently serving or aspire to serve as managers or administrators in the fire service, emergency management, emergency medical services, law enforcement or homeland security in the public, private or nonprofit sectors.
Online option available!

Fire Safety & Explosion Protection, MSET

OSU's Master of Science in Engineering Technology, with an emphasis on fire safety and explosion program is geared toward recent graduates and professionals in a variety of industries, including insurance companies, the oil & gas industry, and fire protection engineering companies. 
Online option available!

Mechatronics and Robotics, MSET

The Master of Science in Engineering Technology with the option in Mechatronics and Robotics will provide students with an interdisciplinary applied engineering education through coursework, project and thesis work.  Students will learn fundamental and applied concepts of real-world mechatronic and robotic systems, including interface theory, sensing and actuation systems, hardware and software integration, modeling and control.  Online options available!
