Applied Engineering & Technology Management (AETM)

The Applied Engineering and Technology Management (AETM) program recognizes the demands of the rapidly changing engineering and technology industries by equipping students with broad perspectives of the field and specific competencies of the applied engineering concentration of their choice. 

Why Study This Program?

The Applied Engineering and Technology Management (AETM) program will prompt you to develop a broad perspective of the purpose and functions of engineering and technology, while acquiring a deep knowledge of the applied engineering concentration of your choice. 

This major, housed within Millersville University's Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology department, recognizes that employers are looking for well-educated professionals to meet the needs of today’s global society. Through your study at MU, you will gain the knowledge and skills to transform into a highly qualified professional ready to meet the challenges of an exciting career in the technical business, industry, government or education fields. 

Available concentrations in Advanced Manufacturing Technology, Computer-Aided Drafting & Design (CADD), Construction Management, General Technology, Graphic Communication, Nanofabrication Technology, and Robotics & Control Systems will refine and specialize your study.

Graduates of this program receive a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Applied Engineering and Technology Management, which is accredited by The Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).

What Will You Learn?

All Applied Engineering and Technology Management students receive both theoretical instruction and hands-on, experiential preparation under the guidance of passionate and experienced professors.

Each of the seven concentrations within this major incorporate broad explorations of engineering and technology and specific study related to students' chosen fields.

The Advanced Manufacturing Technology concentration explores principles of efficient process design and management and equips students with the business skills necessary to compete in the 21st century industry.

The Computer-Aided Drafting & Design (CADD) concentration provides students with theoretical and practical skill in drafting and design, with the intention that they become highly competent in multiple industry-standard CADD software applications which are required for employment in various engineering industries. 

The Construction Management concentration incorporates a wide range of courses, including computer-aided drafting and design, architectural design, construction methods, construction planning, construction scheduling and supervision to prepare students to think creatively while solving real-world problems.

The General Technology concentration prepares students to appropriately use tools, materials and processes to perform a variety of industrial technology tasks related to communication, production and transportation systems.

The Graphic Communication concentration adopts a comprehensive approach to the industry by exploring the aspects of pre-press through post-press operations including design, layout and desktop publishing.

The Nanofabrication Technology concentration places students at the forefront of technological innovation through technical courses in nanoscale science and engineering, management courses, and other relevant courses for this rapidly growing field.

The Robotics & Control Systems concentration involves the optimization and automation of processes related to robotics and control systems, as students are introduced to the fundamentals of current power and electronic systems used in the industry.
