UDST's  Engineering Technology programs are designed to produce graduates with a diverse technical background, hands-on aptitude and teamwork skills.

The development of practical skills and competencies are enhanced through partnerships with industry and world-class shops and labs equipped with the latest industrial equipment. In addition, technology training promotes independent thinking and problem-solving.

Programs offered at the university prepare individuals for maintenance and operator positions at the technician and technologist levels. The program structure allows students to progress from the two-year technician diploma to the three-year technologist designations in certain disciplines. Disciplines include Chemical Processing, Electrical, Process Automation and Telecommunications. The requirements for operations training are addressed by the Chemical Processing Technician and Technology programs.
