Students earning their bachelor’s degree in the Engineering Technology program of the Bemidji State University are called Technologists. They are specialists dedicated to the development, design, and implementation of engineering and technology. These professionals are most likely to enter positions in sectors such as construction, manufacturing, product design or technical services and sales.


Hand-On Learning: 

If you are a “hands-on” type of individual, someone who may have taken small engines, or machine shop in high school, who likes tinkering on their snowmobile or ATV on the weekend, then the Engineering Technology program of the Bemidji State University is perfect for you! Engineering Technology students learn more through hands-on training as opposed to theory alone. They spend an extensive amount of time in the College of Technology, Art & Design’s thirteen labs where they focus on analyzing, applying, implementing and improving products and technologies.

Entry Level Positions: 

Product design, testing, product development, systems development, field engineering, technical operations, and quality control are all common positions for engineering technology graduates.

Difference between Engineering Technology and Engineering: 

Engineering Technology deals with the same topics as engineering, but the knowledge is more applied, as opposed to theoretical knowledge. Engineering Technology focuses on algebra, trigonometry, applied calculus, and other courses that are more practical than theoretical in nature. Engineering programs require advanced-level math and calculus as well as theory-based science courses. Once they enter the workforce, engineering graduates typically spend their time planning, while Engineering Technology graduates spend their time making plans work.
