The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers.  Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.

The BS in Engineering Technology is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Communicate technology problem solutions.

  • Apply technology tools in applied engineering and technology.

  • Analyze data and notice trends to successfully provide solutions.

  • Team-based skills including leadership and conflict resolution abilities.

  • Prepare to engage in lifelong learning.
