The primary mission of the College of Engineering and Technology is to prepare students for professional level careers in construction management, engineering and engineering technology. The basis for this education is the integrated Project-based Learning (PBL) approach through all years of the curricula. Faculty are dedicated to providing innovative programs that integrate classroom, laboratory, and workplace experience. Faculty bring a strong commitment to teaching and extensive industry and business experience, while the College’s laboratories contain some of the most modern, high tech equipment available at any college or university.    

 A secondary mission of the College of Engineering and Technology is to serve as a resource to the region by extending the knowledge and expertise of college faculty to assist business and industry and to support economic development. The College’s Center for Rapid Product Realization facilitates this engagement. Courses as well as individual students, can become involved in these engagement activities.

College of Engineering and Technology Computer Requirement. The College of Engineering and Technology uses Virtual Computing Laboratories for instruction.  All students enrolling for courses in the College of Engineering and Technology must have a laptop computer that meets standard university networking and hardware configuration requirements. Due to the complex requirements of engineering and technology-related software, we require laptops with more advanced configurations than those required by the university as a whole. Our laptop specifications may be found on our website at https://cet.wcu.edu.
