The Engineering Technology Department is one of five departments in the Washkewicz College of Engineering at Cleveland State University (CSU). The division was established in 1970. Currently, two programs are offered: Electronics & Mechanical Engineering Technology.  The programs lead to the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology and Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology, respectively.  Students who have earned an engineering or science Associates degree may transfer into the upper two years of the programs as 2+2 students and complete the bachelor degree.

A Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology graduate is qualified to work in positions requiring the, "application of scientific and engineering knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities," as stated by ABET. CSU's Engineering Technology graduates are employed in a diverse range of industries, including, industrial control and automation, aerospace, medical, computer, telecommunications, and defense industries. Most importantly, Engineering Technology prepares graduates to contribute immediately in these industries.

Mission Statement

Our department will serve the regional community as a readily accessible engineering and technology resource.

Vision Statement

We will provide students with the highest quality hands-on education needed to succeed in the modern industrial workplace.



Cleveland State University (CSU), located in downtown Cleveland, is one of the nation's youngest state universities. With nearly one-fifth of Ohio's population, the metropolitan area surrounding CSU contains many leading businesses and industries.
