Built Environment Engineering Technology (BEET) studies the built environment through three core disciplines: mechanical design technology, civil design technology, and building design technology. This program focuses on the fundamental theories and concepts in these core disciplines while learning and applying current technology so that graduates are prepared to enter a professional career as an engineering technician.
From roads and buildings to machines and robotics, students in the built environment engineering technology program will gain skills in drafting, engineering and design to create the products and places that move our world forward.
BEET focuses on the core disciplines of the built environment; mechanical, civil, and building. Students will learn to research, plan, design, construct and test with considerations for the relationship between the built environment and the natural environment.
Mechanical engineering technology: Mechanical products and devices such as; process plants, machines, robots, tools, and all the “things” people use.
Civil engineering technology: Land development and infrastructure such as; roads, bridges, neighborhoods, parks, pipelines and all the “spaces” connecting people.
Building design technology: Structures and buildings such as; houses, offices, stores, warehouses, schools, and all the “places” people live and work.
The BEET program is a hands-on experience that prepares students to enter many career fields and keep pace with technology. This includes, but is not limited to:
Employment opportunities as engineer technicians in a variety of industries:
Creativity, curiosity and a clear understanding of computers, mathematics, and physics is an asset to anyone entering the BEET program.
