At Oregon Tech, Civil Engineering students can explore many facets of the profession, including structural, environmental, transportation, and geotechnical engineering. Civil engineering focuses on responsible planning, design, construction, and maintenance of the nation’s infrastructure. Civil engineers design communities, highways, bridges, buildings, dams, and water and waste management systems.
Students in Computer Engineering Technology learn computer systems along with the traditional aspects of applied engineering. The major is often referred to as “hardware.” The major actually prepares students to apply both hardware and software systems to computer applications.
The Electrical Engineering program at Oregon Tech is concerned with theory, concepts, and practices of applied electrical and electronics engineering by applying math, science, and engineering principles to engineering problems. Electrical engineering provides the most career opportunities in the engineering field.
Optical Engineering dual majors have the knowledge and ability to produce, manipulate, and detect light. These skills enhance those of the primary major and graduates have a competitive advantage when entering the workforce.
The EET program is designed to prepare graduates to assume engineering and technology positions in the electronics industry. This program also provides a solid preparation for students intending to continue to graduate school to pursue masters degrees in engineering, engineering management, MBAs, and JDs. Accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
The goal of the Embedded Systems program is to prepare students with the skills demanded by real-world industrial applications on diverse products like interactive multimedia, printers, medical equipment, avionics equipment, kitchen appliances, cell phones, and automotive engine management units.
Geomatics is an exciting profession that fuses land surveying, geographic information systems (GIS), and advanced computer technology. Geomatics professionals use an integrated approach to measuring, analyzing and managing spatial data, employing high-tech equipment like Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), digital photogrammetry, digital total stations, satellite and terrestrial remote sensing to create a detailed but understandable picture of the Earth's natural and man-made features.
This program bridges two different disciplines and departments: Allied Health and Management. The Health Care Management degree fully prepares students to assume managerial and supervisory positions in the healthcare industry.
Health Informatics is the study and application of how health data are collected, stored and communicated; how those data are processed into useful health information; and how computer and telecommunications technology can be applied to support these processes.
Oregon Tech offers four options in the Information Technology degree: Accounting, Applications Development, Business/Systems Analysis and Health Informatics. The program provides a challenging, state-of-the-art education for those interested in learning the dynamic and growing field of information technology. The field is interdisciplinary with applications to all aspect of the economy.
The Management degree offers three options: Accounting, Entrepreneurship/Small Business Management, and Marketing. The program prepares students to manage organizations in the high technology environments of the 21st century.
Manufacturing engineers combine technology and management principles to design facilities, machinery and processes that meet business goals. They must understand the theory and applications of computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD & CAM), computer simulation, robotics, electrical and fluid power, motion control, integrated control systems, machine design, facilities design, tool design and process analysis and design.
Mechanical Engineering majors learn the theory and application of mechanical design and the process of developing a product that can improve society. Mechanical Engineering graduates obtain a working knowledge of core engineering disciplines including mechanics, dynamics, fluid mechanics, thermal science, and materials science. Mechanical Engineering at Oregon Institute of Technology is a hands-on applied engineering program. In addition to an excellent engineering education graduates obtain practical skills to succeed in their chosen career path. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines, so graduates have a wide range of career options from which to choose.
At Oregon Tech, Mechanical Engineering Technology majors learn the theory and application of mechanical design and the process of developing a product that can improve society. Mechanical Engineering Technology majors work in many industries, and their work varies by industry and function. Some specialize in energy systems; applied mechanics; automotive design; manufacturing; materials; plant engineering and maintenance; pressure vessels and piping; and heating, refrigeration and air-conditioning systems.
The degree in Operations Management prepares students for leadership positions in the production and service industries. Particular emphasis is directed toward developing the ability to contribute to the improvement of productivity in a quality-oriented environment and to manage effectively in a team based work environment. Students should develop mastery of concepts, tools, and skills in management sciences and specialties. Oregon Tech offers Operations Management degree programs in Klamath Falls and Wilsonville.
The REE curriculum prepares graduates for graduate study or for immediate employment as field engineers, energy auditors, renewable energy system integrators for homes and businesses, manufacturing engineers for component and subsystem manufacturers, designers for components and subsystems, local and state government renewable-energy inspectors, planners and other positions in the energy field. Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,www.abet.org.
Software Engineering Technology prepares students to design, develop, integrate, and implement computer software. Graduates of the Software Engineering Technology (SET) Program will have a thorough understanding of the key principles and practices of applied software engineering, including possessing the ability to identify, analyze, test and solve non-trivial software engineering technical problems.
The TM program is designed specifically for students who have completed a technical Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Science degree and are seeking career advancement into management or in their technical career field.
