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 Design and Technology is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Conduct engineering design using Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools.

  • Fabricate prototypes via various manufacturing processes and equipment.

  • Communicate effectively in both written and verbal forms.

  • Work collaboratively in a team environment.
