Engineering Technology Programs

Engineering technology education focuses primarily on the applied aspects of science and engineering aimed at preparing graduates for practice in that portion of the technological spectrum closest to product improvement, industrial processes, and operational functions. The engineering technology programs at Weber State prepare individuals for a wide variety of positions in technologybased business and industries. The study of engineering technology requires a knowledge of mathematical, scientific, and engineering principles in combination with a strong applications-orientation in support of engineering activities. The College of Applied Science & Technology offers AAS and BS degrees in the following engineering technology programs:

  • Computer Engineering Technology
  • Design Engineering Technology
  • Electronics Engineering Technology
  • Manufacturing Engineering Technology
  • Mechanical Engineering Technology

The BS degrees in these programs are accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc., 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone 410-347-7700.

Center for Automotive Science and Technology

Director: Joe Thomas
Location: TE 201 Telephone: 801-626-7836

The Center for Automotive Science and Technology was established in 1997 to assist in developing a better understanding of vehicle emissions among academic, regulatory, and private sector entities, both locally and nationally. To do this, the Center provides training to automotive technicians, instructors, regulatory officials, field engineers, and consumer groups as well as doing applied research on vehicular emissions. Additionally, the Center gathers and disseminates information about the impact of emissions, design for emission abatement, and efficiency of vehicles. The Center is a cooperative endeavor of the University, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, and multiple private companies.

Technology Assistance Center

Director: Rainie Ingram
Location: ET 116 Telephone: 801-626-7785

The Technology Assistance Center was established in 1991 to provide various types of technical assistance to the region. The goal of the Center includes furnishing technical, managerial, and interdisciplinary support for the University, regional businesses, governments, schools, and other organizations.  The Center works as an outreach organization in promoting technological excellence through educational outreach.  The Center works as an information clearing house by conducting data base searches, providing technical assistance in product or process development or testing, demonstrating new or emerging technologies, training, promoting technical careers in primary, secondary, and post-secondary students, and creating an understanding of technology, economy, society, and the individual.  This assistance, which is provided by faculty, students, and others, includes but is not limited to problem solving, decision support for new technology or systems, product or process design assistance, material handling, cost analysis, quality control assistance, team building, software and hardware development, technical training, promotion, retreats, camps, and seminars.
