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
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.
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.
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
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 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.
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.
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!
The Fire and Emergency Management Program is a specialized degree designed to provide

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!
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!
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!
SME has chosen five university professors to receive its 2021 Distinguished Faculty Advisor Award. Established in 2011, the award is presented to SME student chapter faculty advisors to recognize their continued oversight and engagement efforts advocating for students and the manufacturing industry.
SFPE has recognized 9 of its members as Fellows for 2021. SFPE Fellows represent a distinguished group of members who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. Election to Fellow not only recognizes the achievements of fire protection and fire safety engineers as individuals, but also their significant contributions to fire protection engineering and society globally.
