You are to be commended if your decision is to attend Shawnee State and to major in an industrial or engineering technology. You will find few things more satisfying than learning about modern technologies. The field of industrial and engineering technology can lead to exciting and professionally fulfilling careers in the 21st Century. The Department:

  • Develops curricula that create an understanding of the practical and scientific bases of selected engineering technologies and modifies curricula and teaching methods in response to technological advancement and change.
  • Encourages the development of sound work ethics and a spirit of cooperation and excellence.
  • Provides cooperative educational services.
  • Seeks and encourages participation from the business and industrial community.
  • Promotes occupational and educational opportunities for all graduates.

Your professional education is our primary goal, and the quality of your success provides the ultimate evaluation of how well we are meeting our goal.

All of our programs offer career-oriented, technical instruction grounded in a strong base of science and mathematics. If you are interested in these programs, you should prepare yourself by taking mathematics and science courses in high school.

To assure preparedness, students planning to enroll in programs offered by the department should have an ACT math score of 19 and an ACT English score of 22, or via the University’s placement test, be placed in MATH 1020, Intermediate Algebra and Applications, and ENGL 1101 or 1102, Discourse and Composition (A, B, or Honors).

If you did not take mathematics and science courses in high school, you are advised to take advantage of the developmental courses available at Shawnee State, preferably during the summer before starting fall quarter. The University administers mathematics and English assessment tests in order to place each student in appropriate courses.

Articulation from Shawnee State’s associate degree programs or other colleges’ associate degree programs in technology into the junior year of our B.S. programs is possible. If you are interested in this option, you should contact the department office to schedule an advising appointment with the department chair.

Special Notes for all Bachelor and Associate Degrees in Industrial and Engineering Technologies

  • Pass/No-Credit Policy

Students in the Department of Industrial and Engineering Technologies are not permitted to take any course in their major course of study on a pass/no-credit basis. This includes any course that is specifically identified by course number and/or course title as a requirement for your graduation.

  • Entering Student English and Math Placement

Entering students are expected to place in ENGL 1102 (3 hours) and MATH 1300. If entering student placement is below ENGL 1102, this course will be replaced with ENGL 1101 (5 hours). If entering student math placement is below MATH 1300, remediation to get to this level is below the content of this program. 

Robotics Option

(Offered upon sufficient demand)

Students enrolled in the associate degree programs in computer aided drafting and design and electromechanical and plastics engineering technology may also pursue a concentration in robotics. You must have electromechanical faculty approval and complete 9 semester hours of the following courses in numerical sequence.
