Why Engineering Technology at Lawrence Tech?
The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology program is designed both for individuals who already hold an associate degree in engineering technology from other institutions and for those who are concurrently completing their associate degree at Lawrence Tech. Students can attend full-time or part-time and choose from four areas of specialization: communications engineering technology, construction engineering technology, manufacturing engineering technology, and mechanical engineering technology. All technical courses are taught on weekday evenings, with other courses available during the day.
Lawrence Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology degree adds a broader technical base to the highly specialized associate degree programs, allowing graduates to exercise a higher level of technical responsibility. The program also emphasizes the administrative skills required for most technical supervisory roles and is thus especially useful to upwardly mobile technicians who are preparing for new career opportunities.
