What Will You Learn?

Each of the four main programs of study within Millersville University's Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology department carefully combine theoretical instruction with hands-on, experiential preparation.

Gain a broad perspective of what technology is and what it does through the Applied Engineering & Technology Management (AETM, AET) program. Focus your study on manufacturing technology, computer-aided drafting and design, construction technology, graphic communication and more through technical options of your choice. 

The Automation & Intelligent Robotics Engineering Technology (ARET) program is designed to produce graduates with expertise in multiple types of technology to design and implement projects that have advanced programming needs. Students are introduced to the fundamentals of power, electronic systems and formal programming techniques common in the industry.

Develop basic science knowledge before focusing on the application that knowledge in the technical and managerial aspects of safety and environmental health with the Occupational Safety & Environmental Health (OSEH) program. This program prepares students for a challenging but rewarding profession that focuses on protecting workers and the general public from injury and illness.

The Technology & Engineering Education (EDTE) program is a teacher training program with an emphasis on understanding, managing and assessing design, energy, power, transportation and production technologies. Students may specialize in a technical area of their choice and must devote one semester to full-time student teaching in a public school.
