Applied Engineering, BS | Kent State University

Applied Engineering, BS

The Bachelor of Science degree Applied Engineering major consists of four concentrations: Applied Engineering and Technology Management, Computer Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, and Mechatronics.

The Applied Engineering field is concerned with the application of management, design and technical skills for the design and integration of systems, the execution of new product designs, the improvement of manufacturing processes and the management and direction of physical and/or technical functions of a firm or organization. Applied Engineering and Technology Management provides students the necessary skills to manage complex technological systems. It also functions as a completer degree for students with engineering technology associate degrees. The majority of the coursework in the last two years focuses on the management of applied engineering. Applied Engineering students learn in the classroom as well as through hands-on experiments and real world internships.

Senior students in ATMAE accredited programs are given the opportunity to take the ATMAE CTM exam.
