Applied Engineering and Technology Management Programs
Employers are looking for well educated and highly qualified technical employees to meet the needs of a modern workforce. With the rapid pace of change, you need to prepare yourself to be competitive as technology and engineering-related careers evolve. The Department of Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology is the regional expert that will help transform you into a high-performance professional ready to meet the challenges of an exciting career.
We have eight technical options in our Applied Engineering and Technology Management program. These eight options are:
- Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (B.S./A.T)
- Construction Technology (B.S./A.T)
- Electronics/Control Systems Technology (B.S./A.T)
- General Industrial Technology (B.S,)
- Graphic Communication (B.S./A.T)
- Manufacturing Technology (B.S./A.T)
- Nanofabrication Technology (B.S./A.T)
- Safety Technology (A.T. only)
The four-year bachelor's program will prepare you in three critical areas:
The first area of preparation is in the University General Education Core. General education is a group of courses that have been developed to make you into a well-rounded individual. These courses address needs like communication, writing, human perspectives, and diversity. All Millersville students regardless of their major must complete the general education requirements.
Your technical preparation happens in the Department of Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology. The required and elective courses that fill out your technical preparation will give you both the theoretical and hands-on experience you will need to go out into the professional world. These courses are meant to give you familiarity with the technologies you will encounter in your life after Millersville.
The third area of preparation is in management. The management core is intended to provide you with the skills and abilities that will be useful to you in your role in management after you complete your degree.
If a four year degree is not for you right now, all of our technical options are available at the associate's (two-year) level. The associate's degree focuses on the first two areas of preparation (general education and technical preparation). The two-year degree was developed for those who want to gain the technical perspective, but don't have the ability to pursue a four-year degree. Don't worry, though - if you do decide that you want to pursue a bachelor's degree, the coursework you complete for the associate's degree will work seamlessly into a four-year program.
The eight technical options have been developed by working closely with our Applied Engineering and Technology Management Advisory Committee. The members of this committee are local leaders who have first-hand experience that tells them what is needed by local and regional employers.
