Engineering Technology: Bachelor of Applied Science

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study


BTC’s Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering Technology (BASET) degree has been designed to meet the needs of students who want to work in the engineering field. The program focuses on providing hands-on technical education that prepares graduates to be productive professionals who make meaningful contributions to the engineering industry. Our curriculum balances theoretical content, robust applied laboratory work, and engaging classroom experiences. Intensive engineering design projects provide students with a strong foundation of engineering technology knowledge and skills that align with traditional and emerging careers in the engineering industry.

Program Outcomes

  •  An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;


  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;


  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
  •  An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.
