Why Study Engineering?

Students enter the fields of engineering to intensify and broaden their knowledge within engineering and engineering technology. They will gain preparation for industrial careers in a variety of engineering, technical, supervisory, or managerial capacities. Courses in these fields contribute to their technical and professional growth.

Engineering and Engineering Technology at CMU

The School of Engineering and Technology offers a variety of choices to students interested in careers in engineering and engineering technology. Majors and minors within the School reflect the diversity of our programs. As you select from our majors and minor, remember that you are pursuing a degree, and must meet all the degree requirements as well as the major and minor requirements listed.

Graduate Study: The Master of Science in Engineering is available. Refer to the Graduate Studies Bulletin or an advisor for additional information.

The Programs

Engineering Majors

The engineering majors prepare students to help solve many exciting and demanding problems including important global issues related to energy and the environment, as well as the development of new devices, products and materials. Students work with advanced computer simulations and modern, well-equipped laboratories that provide exciting and valuable hands-on experience.

Mission Statement

The mission of the engineering programs at Central Michigan University is to

  • Provide an environment that encourages intense interaction between and among faculty and students.
  • Provide instruction that enables students to move from theoretical concepts into practical applications.
  • Create graduates who are capable of succeeding in the job market or advanced studies.

Admission Policy

Any student in good academic standing at CMU may declare a major in any of the engineering or engineering technology majors. However, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher to enroll in all 200-, 300-, and 400-level engineering (EGR) and engineering technology (IET) courses. Students wishing to substitute EGR or IET courses at 300 level or above must obtain pre-approval from the School Director unless those courses appear on CMU’s What Will Transfer website:

Engineering Technology Student Outcomes

All Engineering Technology programs share the following Student Outcomes:

By the time of graduation from any of the Engineering Technology programs, students are expected to have:

  • An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined  technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements , and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes
  • An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams
