The mission of the Engineering Technology program at Sam Houston State University is to provide an educational program designed to assist students in acquiring the knowledge, skills, and experiences through which they may prepare themselves for rewarding and meaningful roles in an engineering and technology society.


The Engineering Technology program has offered degrees since its founding in 1910. Over the past 100+ years the program has evolved to meet the changing needs of business & industry. Engineering Technology majors use principles and theories of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems in research and development, manufacturing, sales, construction, inspection, and maintenance. The engineering technology program at Sam Houston State University is intended to provide students with the educational experience to meet industry management, leadership, physical sciences, technology of industry, and basic engineering for the solution of problems involving industrial products, services, materials and processes, and the supervision and management of facilities and personnel.
