The Department of Engineering, Engineering Technology, and Surveying, a unit of the College of Business and Technology [CBAT], is one of the largest and most academically diverse units of East Tennessee State University. The Department offers undergraduate degree programs in numerous concentrations, undergraduate minors in two areas, and graduate degree programs in three concentrations. Additionally, there are many majors and/or programs that are available through the Academic Common Market allowing out-of-state students to enroll at ETSU at in-state tuition rates.
The department’s administrative and faculty offices are housed in Wilson-Wallis Hall. https://www.etsu.edu/cbat/applieddesign/contactus.php
All non-technology coursework such as English, mathematics, and science is evaluated for transfer by an analyst in the Office of Admissions. All technology coursework submitted for transfer will be analyzed by the department chair or the appropriate program coordinator. The following criteria apply:
- Coursework must have been taken at a regionally accredited two- or four-year institution.
- Coursework must be equivalent to an ETSU course; if not, it will count as elective credit.
- Only coursework for which a grade of C (2.0) or higher was earned will be accepted for transfer credit for courses in English, mathematics, science, and technology.
- No associate degree coursework will be accepted for Engineering Technology coursework at the 4xxx level.
Upon admission, the transfer student may consult the corresponding academic advisor for an agreement listing the coursework that must be successfully completed by the student.
Students contemplating the transfer of their technology-based associate degree should read the policy statement regarding transfer student admissions elsewhere in this catalog and confer with the corresponding academic advisor with the Department of Engineering, Engineering Technology, and Surveying.
Product Development Concentration
The Product Development concentration is a multidisciplinary, manufacturing-based curriculum designed to educate and prepare students to be multifunctional, creative, and knowledgeable leaders and team members of product design teams. Graduates are able to apply their knowledge and understanding of the product development processes and new product realization.
Each Engineering Technology student must successfully complete (pass) the Exit Exam in their respective concentrations to graduate. Once a student has completed and submitted their graduation application they can schedule an appointment for the Exit Exam with the ETSU testing center. Exit Exams are typically administered during the last month of each Spring and Fall semesters. Students who do not successfully complete (pass) the Exit Exam in the first attempt can retake the exam, there is no limit to the number of times a student can take the Exit Exam as long as it is scheduled within the administration time-frame. Students are advised to take the Exit Exam as soon as eligible in case a scheduled retake is necessary.
