Jessica Meyer is a senior at Grand Canyon University. She was raised in Tucson, AZ, but recently moved to Phoenix to attend traditional classes at GCU. Jessica is majoring in marketing in the Colangelo College of Business. It is her first and last year studying at the main campus, and she wishes her time at GCU could last longer! She loves GCU so much, that she hopes to continue to work for GCU’s marketing department after graduation.
In the last two years, Grand Canyon University has launched several new STEM programs in fields like engineering, computer science and IT. As part of our commitment to continue to grow the College of Science, Engineering and Technology, we have recently added two new engineering technology degree programs: the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology and Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology.
Explore the details of these exciting and innovative new programs:
Electrical Engineering Technology
GCU’s Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology is perfect for students who want to gain applicable industry knowledge, while participating in a hands-on learning environment. This engineering technology program teaches students the practical workings of complex electrical components, as well as the techniques to build and maintain electrical systems. The curriculum prepares students for a professional career in engineering, as it was designed by a team of industry technologists and experienced faculty members. GCU’s small class sizes allow students to partner with professionals and execute several demanding engineering projects.
Upon completion of this program, students have valuable workplace skills, including ethical practices through the context of GCU’s Christian worldview. With these skills, graduates are prepared for a fulfilling career assisting electrical engineers in manufacturing and engineering services, while being on the forefront of solving important business and industrial challenges.
Mechanical Engineering Technology
GCU’s Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology is designed for students interested in assisting engineers in designing, building and maintaining advanced machinery. This engineering technology program teaches students how to communicate confidently and to become well-versed in the intersections of engineering and manufacturing. Accomplished technologists and faculty members have designed the curriculum to ensure that students are immersed in real-world activities and gain hands-on educational experience. The curriculum goes in-depth on important topics such as heat and power generation, computer-aided engineering and manufacturing techniques.
When students complete this program, they will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue a career as a liaison between manufacturing and engineering teams, or as a design and testing partner to an engineer.
