Engineering technologists are implementers and problem solvers. Some help engineers and scientists with research and development. Some build or assemble equipment, do experiments, collect data or calculate results. Others are involved with quality control, checking products, testing and finding ways to produce products more efficiently.
As an engineering technologist, you may work in a wide variety of industries depending on your area of interest and specialization, including aerospace, medicine, environmental sciences, computer science, electronics and software development, manufacturing and construction virtually any industry in which products are designed, developed or tested.
Engineering technologists who have earned their bachelor's degree often pursue graduate study in engineering management, construction management, business administration, or similar programs in order to advance in their fields.
Coursework includes algebra, trigonometry, applied calculus and science courses. The level of required math and science study is focused more on application than theory.
