Many students ask “What is the difference between an engineering degree and an engineering technology (ET) degree?” The short answer is that the ET degree program does not require calculus, but does require more applied “hands-on” labs and coursework. An engineering program of study focuses on the theoretical - an engineering technology program of study focuses on applications. Some more differences:
"Engineering technology is the profession in which a knowledge of mathematics and natural sciences gained by higher education, experience, and practice is devoted primarily to the implementation and extension of existing technology for the benefit of humanity. Engineering technology education focuses primarily on the applied aspects of science and engineering aimed at preparing graduates for practice in that portion of the technological spectrum closest to product improvement, manufacturing, construction, and engineering operational functions."
