Engineering Technology

Engineering Technology aims to improve design and manufacturing methodologies through the hands-on application of engineering principles. Engineering technologists provide a range of services, from collaborating with engineers in the development of new products and processes to technical support and diagnostic services. They're the type of people who like to take things apart, see how they work, and try to make them even better before putting them back together.

Our program, offered through Drexel University's Goodwin College of Professional Studies, provides an integrated educational experience directed toward developing the ability to apply fundamental knowledge to the solution of practical technological problems. A Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology from Drexel at BCC will prepare you to bridge the gap between theory and production in the workforce.

The program can be completed in two years of full-time study. Part-time options are available.

Sample Courses

Quality Control – Covers variables, procedures, and processes of total quality control within the manufacturing industries. Includes instrumentation for material evaluation, attribute inspection and sampling, supervising for organizational quality improvements, and statistical control.

Non-Destructive Evaluation of Materials – Presents the physical principles of sound velocity measurement in different materials, attenuation coefficients, directivity pattern of transducers, and the location and dimensions of heterogeneities in materials, such as flaws and cavities.

Fluid Power – Examines hydrostatics, the principles governing fluids at rest, pressure measurement, hydrostatic forces on submerged areas and objects, and simple dams. Discussions focus on fluid flow in pipes under pressure, fluid energy, power and friction loss, and Bernoulli's theorem.

Plan of Study for BCC Students

We've developed a comprehensive plan of study for BCC students who enter the Drexel at BCC Engineering Technology program. This plan outlines the required courses students must complete to receive a bachelor's degree from Drexel. It also indicates how the BCC semester credits convert to Drexel quarter credits.
