Online Master of Science in Engineering Technology

Engineered to Be Different

Connect engineering, technology and science to practical industrial or business applications and emerge as a leader in your field. With Purdue's online MS in Engineering Technology program, offered through our Polytechnic Institute, you'll gain deep technical knowledge, essential skills and direct experiences in the discipline. You'll learn how to solve problems creatively, think critically, truly innovate, and communicate in a compelling way to all project stakeholders — the top soft skills employers seek.

Throughout every course, you'll capture real-world knowledge that you can immediately use to succeed in your current role and position yourself for future advancement.

Is This the Right Program for You?

The MS in Engineering Technology is not to be confused with a graduate degree in engineering science. Designed for students with an undergraduate degree in engineering, engineering technology, science, information technology or business, the engineering technology program is uniquely equipped to prepare you for a variety of careers, but it does not prepare you to be a theoretical engineer.

You'll have the ability to solve business and industry challenges using existing sciences and technologies. You'll merge knowledge, art and skill to develop and impact the deployment of solutions to complex, real-world problems in manufacturing technology, and many other areas.
