The Department of Engineering Technology at the University of North Texas advances your training and prepares you to design, develop, build and manage modern technological systems.

Our department is the only one of its kind in the Dallas-Fort Worth region and offers course work leading to a Master of Science degree in Engineering Technology. You can also earn a dual M.S. and Master of Business Administration degree.

Our curriculum applies current and emerging technology to solve engineering problems of industrial relevance. Experiential learning activities are introduced in most courses while emphasizing hands-on laboratory activities. The degree offers you opportunities to enhance your analytical, communication and engineering problem-solving skills.

Outstanding faculty and student resources You'll work closely with distinguished faculty members in a small-class setting to solve complex problems faced by businesses and consumers. 

You can also take advantage of the university's invaluable contacts with leading companies and corporate partners. Flexible class and lab times are available if you work full time or part time.

Our department's graduates are actively recruited by technical firms and businesses. With more than 1,200 alumni holding technology degrees, we measure our success by our graduates' success.

UNT provides a wide variety of services exclusively to graduate students. The Graduate Student Writing Support office can help you with writing, and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research offers assistance with statistical research.
