The Department of Engineering Technologies, Safety, and Construction (ETSC) offers a master of science degree in engineering technology (MSET). The program is designed to prepare persons holding a bachelor of science degrees in the engineering technologies (ET), industrial technologies (IT), and similar or related degrees for career advancement. The MSET core curriculum is designed to teach students how to address technological challenges such as improving existing products, services, and work processes, and developing new ones. The context for instruction takes into account contemporary challenges in business and industry, such as innovating when technology is rapidly changing, adapting to the global economy, and protecting the environment. Students select elective courses in order to build upon their current technical capabilities or to develop knowledge and skills in a new area that complements their career objectives.
Develop advanced competencies associated with the latest innovations in engineering technology. Broaden the career potential of individuals through a program of coursework, research, and exposure to new ideas. Develop future engineering technology faculty having the proper academic background to teach in two- and four-year universities and technical institutions. Promote the notion of life-long learning as a way of professional life.
Upon completion of the MSET degree program, the graduate student will be able to:
Access information databases on details of recent technological innovations in areas such as materials, manufacturing, electronics, design, and instrumentation; Learn how to conduct research in an efficient manner; Present results of research in a clear and concise manner, both verbal and written; Understand how products are designed and developed in the commercial sector with knowledge of design, manufacturing processes, materials, and information transfer; Develop analytical and practical techniques to analyze systems of related components such as manufacturing facilities, machinery, and fluid/thermal systems; and Develop an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving by utilizing knowledge of electronics, mechanics, materials, manufacturing and economics.
“CWU is located in an ideal location, its right in the middle of WA and within driving distance of any city in WA which makes it easier to take vacations. CWU has small classes with less than 30 students in each class, this encourages a close student-instructor relationship which has been very helpful to me especially during my freshman year when I was trying to get used to the way of life here. CWU offers amazing tuition prices and waivers for international students to enable them to concentrate on school and not have to worry about their financials all the time. The international community here at CWU is very supportive of international students and the advisors are always looking out for the students by exploring new ways to improve the services they already offer.”
