What is Engineering Technology?

Engineering Technology is the study of analysing,applying, implementing and improving existing technologies.

Are you someone who learns better by doing instead of reading, knowing that if you could experience historical events in person, you would remember it so much better compared to reading about it in a book? Do you like reading do-it-yourself books or guides or watch videos on YouTube tutorial when a problem arises? Do you love, then, implementing those exact methods you read or watched in real life to see if they actually work? Then perhaps the field of engineering technology is for you?.<...

Engineering programmes often focus on theory and conceptual designs while engineering technology programmes usually focus on application and implementation. Engineering technology programmes also typically focus on algebra, trigonometry, applied calculus and other courses that are more practical than theoretical base. Graduates of engineering technology programmes are called technologists and are most likely to enter positions in sectors such as construction, manufacturing, product design, testing or technical services and sales.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Engineering Technology course?

Good with your hands

While you may have issues when it comes to reading how to do something from a book or guide, you’re the exact opposite when it comes to hands-on work. You may not be bad, by any means, when it comes to books, but your masterful with your hands.

Good with numbers

Picture this: when you’re out with your friends, and one of you finally calls for the bill. While everyone else whips out their phones to launch calculator, to divide the bill among yourselves you calculate everything in your head and spilt it evenly before anyone else can finishes keying in the numbers. The best part? You’re never wrong. Does this sound like you (Okay, making a mistake or two is fine!) Basically, numbers are second nature to you, and they pose no problems.

Love of science

It was one of your favourite subjects in school. You love learning about all living things, no matter how big or small. From blue whales to flightless chickens, they all seem intriguing to you. More than just scratching the surface, you want to know how they work, what makes them tick, and how you can continue to help the ticking continue.
