If you enjoy tinkering with gadgets and bringing ideas to life, engineering technology may be for you. Engineering technologists (ET) literally create the objects we depend on, from smartphones to suspension bridges and everything in between. While traditional engineers work mainly in the conceptual stage of product development, ET graduates are hands-on, building and implementing new technologies in testing labs and in the field. They can apply their abilities in using technical equipment, selling technical products, serving as manufacturers' technical representatives, supervising construction projects and manufacturing processes, and more. A degree in engineering technology will give you marketable skills in this practical, applied science.
