This is a common question that many prospective students ask. To understand the difference and to help decide if PSU's Engineering Technology is a good choice for you, please read the PDF file below. The comparisons were taken in part from a brochure, "Mechanical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering Technology, Which Path Will You Take", published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Changes have been made to apply the comparisons to undergraduate engineering programs and PSU Engineering Technology programs.
