This form is a routing document for the approval of new and revised academic programs.Page 2 will serve as an attachment to the Faculty Senate agenda.Proposing department should complete form, attach as a cover page and forward to the college dean. Documentation should include copy of curriculum as it is to appear in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog.Proposals must arrive to the Undergraduate/Graduate Committee by November in order to reach the Faculty Senate by March 1.†† Proposals received after this date cannot be implemented the following year nor included in the catalog for that year.

a.Rationale for creation, revision, ordeletion:

 

ENGL 415 is removed from the second writing course selections list and COMM 200 and COMM 356 from the oral communications selection list as these courses no longer meet the written communication and oral communication requirements of the department.

 

The accreditation committee of TAC/ABET which accredits our program has suggested the need for a capstone experience of the students in this major.In the technical specialization section of the curriculum, add the sentence: Technical Specialization electives will include a 3 credit capstone experience selected from EGTE 450, EGTE 451, EGTE 466 or UNIV 401/402.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

b.Summary of program:

 

Bioresources Engineering

The Bioresources Engineering Department offers an undergraduate major in Engineering Technology that is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC of ABET).

Engineering Technology

Engineering technology is part of the broad discipline of engineering, in which knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences is applied in utilization of materials and forces.Engineering technology requires the application of scientific and engineering knowledge combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities.The curriculum prepares the engineering technologist to make independent judgments and to design and manage systems and components to achieve conceptual goals with consideration of their effectiveness, safety and cost.Close liaison is maintained between the educational programs and employers to give graduates the greatest opportunity for career development.

Within the major in engineering technology, two optional concentrations are available.The applied electronics and controls concentration includes coursework in digital systems, instrumentation, controls, PLCís, and courses that focus on communication and networks, or manufacturing.The construction technology and technical management concentration provides courses in soil mechanics, storm water management, wood and steel and concrete and masonry as well as courses in project management and economic analysis.Both concentrations allow the student to focus their studies with more in-depth courses in areas of their interest.

Students who choose the engineering technology major may take all the necessary courses at the University of Delaware or they may transfer appropriate course work from other accredited institutions.Students who wish to have prior course work considered must contact an advisor in the department for a degree analysis.

Computer use for problem solving is important throughout the engineering technology curriculum.Students are urged to have their own computer with spreadsheet and word processing software, and should be able to connect to the University computer network.
