The Bachelor of Science in Technology consists three areas of concentration Technology, Construction Management and Technology Education Licensure (ADMISSIONS SUSPENDED).

Technology provides students with a breadth of knowledge and experience and gives students the option of using electives to develop depth in a chosen area. This program, best suited for students with general career goals or who want depth of knowledge in a specific technical area such as casting or quality, is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering.

The construction management concentration is a professional-service approach that applies effective management techniques to the planning design. The concentration includes construction of a project from inception to completion, including emphasis on construction materials and methods to enable graduates to estimate costs, schedule work, oversee construction work site activities and manage projects. The presence of major construction firms and large architectural/engineering firms in the region provides ample internship opportunities. The migration to green technology emphasis and increasingly sophisticated construction projects require stronger project management emphasis, making this program viable well into the future.

The technology education licensure concentration provides students the opportunity to learn the application of technical skills in concert with educational expertise through targeted courses in the College and Graduate School of Education, Health, and Human Services. Students completing the technology education concentration are prepared to take the state licensing exam for teachers (K–12). Kent State is one of 22 institutions nationwide that offers the fully accredited National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) curriculum. ADMISSIONS SUSPENDED

Career Opportunities

Students majoring in General Technology often find positions in entry-level engineer positions working in areas such as Auto-Cad design, product design and quality assurance. Graduates have found excellent careers in companies such as Elwood Engineered Casting, Soft-lite Window Corporation, Ford and GM.

Students in the construction management major will find careers in the construction field whether it is in an architecture company, a residential or commercial construction company or running their business. Students in this program are in demand after graduation and also have many internship opportunities during their academic career.
