Mission Statement: 

The Department of Engineering Technology and Survey Engineering (ETSE) mission is to provide a student-centric education through experiential learning to prepare students for a rewarding career. In particular, faculty work closely with students and each other to foster a family-like environment; unlike traditional engineering, core courses have labs with team projects and hands-on learning experiences; and graduates advance to enhanced career opportunities with competitive compensation. 

Our goal is to help students from diverse backgrounds reach their potential and become successful engineers, technologists, and leaders in the region and nationwide.

Program Educational Objectives:

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are aligned with the Institution’s mission to serve the educational needs of New Mexico’s diverse population through comprehensive programs of education, research, extension education, and public service. As the state’s land grant university, it is the responsibility of educational programs, especially those in engineering technology, to prepare students to enter the local and regional workforce and engage them in community service along the way.

Within a few years after graduation, graduates of the Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) program will:

1.  show continuous  advancement in their discipline while demonstrating professional ethics evident by increased responsibilities transitioning into leadership roles.

2.  remain technically relevant and  adapt to rapid changes in industry through continuous learning, trainings, mentorships, both formal and informal

3.  demonstrate independent, critical thinking, and strong  communication skills to function effectively in teams, in order to solve tomorrow’s challenges.
