Engineering vs Engineering Technology

Graduates of Engineering programs apply scientific concepts to develop solutions to real world problems. Their job is more theoretical, involving the design of new products such as a robot that will be used in an auto manufacturing plant. Engineers require more theoretical, scientific and mathematical knowledge.

Some colleges and universities, such as IPFW, offer two- and four-year Engineering Technology programs that prepare students for practical design and production work. For more information about the technology programs at IPFW visit their websites.
