Engineering technology professionals use the principles of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve problems in research, product development, manufacturing, marketing, technical sales, services, and maintenance. They play key roles in product development: they might build or test equipment; prepare and conduct experiments; analyze results; build prototype versions of newly designed products and equipment, or conduct research. Others work in quality control – inspecting products and processes. If you enter this field, your role will be a vital one; as society becomes more dependent on technology, the need for experienced engineering technology professionals will increase. In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor expects overall employment in the engineering technology field to grow, and graduates will have a wide variety of career options.
