What is Engineering Technology?

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, manufacturing, robotics, unmanned systems, and engineering operational functions.

Students work with a robot in an NMC engineering technology courseThe NMC Engineering Technology degree offers students a broad-based curriculum across all areas of technical education, preparing the graduates for emerging job markets and highly technical fields. The program is designed to allow students to focus on areas of interest or specialize in one of seven technical specializations: Computers, Electronics, Photonics, Marine, Robotics & Automation, Unmanned Aerial Systems, and Unmanned Ground Vehicles.

Summer Marine Technology Camp »

MAY 20–24, 2019

Marine Technology Society logoPlease join us for our fourth annual week-long program for hands-on experience using several marine technologies. Participants will log time on research vessels, collect data using ROVs, sonar, sensors
and buoys and learn about the multiple applications of these technologies.

This is an exciting opportunity for undergraduate students with little to no experience using this equipment as part of their courses or laboratories. The Marine Technology Camp is designed to offer students a chance to not only learn about and use several technologies, but also deploy the equipment to gather data applied to various investigations. Participants should plan on arriving Sunday, May 19 and departing Saturday, May 25.
