Division of Engineering and Technology: Shape the Future

Some people identify problems and others thrive on solving problems. UWA degrees in engineering and technology provide the specialized knowledge and skills needed to identify needs in a wide range of industries and fields and develop the systems or equipment to meet those needs. The future depends on engineering and technology. 

The Division of Engineering and Technology offers Bachelor’s degrees in three major areas: Computer Engineeering Technology (CET), Engineering Technology (ET) and Technology. Two-year Associate’s degrees in Industrial Maintenance (IM) and Automotive Engineering Technology (AET) are also available. While the CET, ET AET and IM programs are designed for traditional on-campus students, the BS in Technology is specifically designed for transfer students with significant technical credit from a community college, trade school or military service and capitalizes on skills already acquired. The BS in Computer Engineering Technology and the BS in Technology are available completely online. The Division of Engineering and Technology also offers certificates in Automotive Technician (Short Certificate) and Welding (Non-Degree Certificate).
