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 - Concentration in Safety Management is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Apply concepts of safety and risk management to prioritize resources, reduce costs and minimize occupational hazards.

  • Anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control hazardous conditions that affect workers, properties and/or work environments.

  • Demonstrate safety leadership skills, teamwork, and effective communication skills.

  • Identify and apply applicable safety standards, regulations, and codes in industrial settings.

  • Apply engineering technology and strategies to resolve issues of ethics and social responsibility.

  • Integrate professional, ethical, and social responsibilities as a professional in the field.

  • Obtain continuous learning skills through applied industry experiences, safety case studies, and past incident records
