1 COVER PAGE INSTITUTION: Indiana State University COLLEGE: College of Technology DEPARTMENT: Applied Engineering and Technology Management DEGREE PROGRAM TITLE: Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology FORM OF RECOGNITION TO BE AWARDED/DEGREE CODE: Bachelor of Science SUGGESTED CIP Code: 15.000 LOCATION OF PROGRAM/CAMPUS CODE: Terre Haute, IN/ 00180700 PROJECTED DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION: Fall Semester 2011 DATE PROPOSAL WAS APPROVED BY May 06, 2011 INSTITUTIONAL BOARD OF TRUSTEES: ________________________________________________ SIGNATURE OF AUTHORIZING INSTITUTIONAL OFFICER ________________________________________________ DATE ________________________________________________ DATE RECEIVED BY COMMISSION FOR HIGHER EDUCATION ________________________________________________ COMMISSION ACTION (DATE)2 A. ABSTRACT Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology Indiana State University, Terre Haute, Indiana Objectives: The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in engineering technology (E.T.) program is designed to produce graduates whose critical thinking skills and knowledge of various engineering technology principals, disciplines, and equipments, make them highly valued resources/human capital in a wide variety of industries, and highly valued, socially responsible, contributing citizens to the State of Indiana. In addition to a robust core of engineering technology courses, the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) will include concentrations designed specifically to meet the varied professional goals of students. It is noteworthy that the BSET curriculum is comprised of existing courses within a wide spectrum of technical offerings; no new courses were developed for this program. Furthermore, many of required courses will be available via web-based delivery to facilitate the ease of program completion for working, for time and or place-bound, students. The program will also function as a collegial and academic link between future and existing engineering technology programs within the Indiana State University (ISU) College of Technology; therein facilitating communication and eliminating unnecessary duplication. The program’s vision is that students will discover and develop their technical aptitudes, while maturing as ethical responsible citizen-contributors to the state of Indiana, as well as to global society. Academic, personal, and professional development aided by education also benefits the economic and societal development of the State of Indiana. Clientele to be served: The B.S. in engineering technology will serve a variety of clientele. One major client segment is the group of students within the Ivy Tech community college system who are currently enrolled in engineering technology and will be seeking the opportunity to continue their education via a four-year institution. Within this population will also be students who are undecided regarding a career choice, but wish to continue studying a broad spectrum of engineering technology courses at the four-year college level, without incurring a significant transfer credit penalty. Another significant segment of this transfer student population, in addition to continuing to study a broad spectrum of engineering technology courses, would like the option of exploring industry specific courses. The B.S. in engineering technology program will also serve those freshmen who enroll at Indiana State University while still undecided about which engineering technology program is a good fit for their aptitudes and career aspirations. It follows, therefore, that the program’s clients will include two-year transfer students, technology-oriented freshman who are seeking a program that offers a broad spectrum of courses, two-year institutions that offer engineering technology programs and need a four-year sister institution that offers follow-on course work, and employers/industries that need engineering technology graduates with strong technical credentials and good critical thinking skills.3 Curriculum: The proposed B.S. in engineering technology program is centered on a 36 credit engineering technology program core, which includes course work in mechanical engineering technology, electronic engineering technology, manufacturing, and technology management. In additional to the engineering technology core, students will select one engineering technology concentration from the following choices: automotive engineering technology, electronic engineering technology, computer engineering technology, packaging engineering technology, and mechanical engineering technology. Each concentration is 15 hours. Apart from the University’s Foundational Studies requirements, the entire B.S. in engineering technology program is 68 hours. Employment opportunities: B.S. in engineering technology program graduates will be welcomed into a number of industries, Graduates will be especially welcomed in work environments where employers require a diversity of technical competencies/experiences. A literature review strongly suggests that graduates are needed in the robotics, automotive and energy related disciplines, which account for a large percentage of Indiana’s manufacturing base. ISU’s engineering technologists are typically employed in manufacturing sectors. According to U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics [1] industrial engineering will experience a 12.6 % employment growth and the projected growth in mechanical engineering employment is 6%. The annual starting salary for mechanical and industrial engineers is over $58,000. While the data reflects employment for engineers, and not engineering technologist, it should be noted that many ISU graduates, especially those who are employed in the manufacturing sectors, have engineering as part of their job title and responsibilities, and according the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor, graduates of 4-year engineering technology programs are often hired as applied engineers and not technicians. According to the Wall Street Journal [2] Indiana has seen the largest percentage in job increases due to a surge in manufacturing jobs. Inside Indiana Business [3] reported that according to the Indiana Department of workforce development Seasonally-adjusted total non-farm employment in Indiana increased by 22,700 in April.
