Recommended Quntitative Literacy Math Courses:
Where engineering focuses on theory and conceptual design, technology, or engineering technology, focuses on application, on implementing technology in an engineering field. Technologists combine basic principles of mathematics or sciences with current engineering standards. Engineering technology is used to test efficiency, improve design and solve problems related to engineering and manufacturing. A technologist may work under a scientist or engineer in a manufacturing or industrial plant, laboratory, construction site, or a research and development department. Technologists, graduates of four-year engineering technology programs, and technicians, graduates of two-year programs, find careers in construction, manufacturing, product design, testing, or technical services and sales.
