Study technology engineering abroad

An in-depth guide to studying technology engineering as an international student.

Technology engineering degrees abroad

Technology engineering refers to the design, development, and implementation of technology in industrial settings. It’s a rapidly expanding field that offers impressive employment prospects.

As a technology engineering student, you’ll develop a solid foundation in engineering principles and processes. As well as sharpening your fundamental skills in maths and science, you’ll take specific classes in computer-aided design (CADD) and prototype construction. You’ll then build the practical expertise needed to test, analyze, and evaluate equipment in real-world settings.

Global advances in technology engineering are being made at a rapid pace, and studying abroad is an exciting chance to witness these developments first-hand. You’ll learn from international experts, discover new places, and make lasting memories.

Technology engineering program structure

Technology engineering is usually studied as a two-year associate degree; this is the minimum requirement needed to qualify as an engineering technician. Associate programs are also excellent stepping stones for individuals looking to further their knowledge on a bachelor’s program.

If you choose to enroll in a bachelor’s degree program, you’ll study over three or four years before graduating as an engineering technologist. Lots of universities encourage students to complete an optional industry placement in the third year of their program. This is a fantastic way to gain hands-on experience and build professional contacts.

If you’re hoping to forge a career in research or teaching, you’ll need to gain a postgraduate qualification. Master’s degrees normally take one or two years of study, while research-based PhDs add a further four to six years on top.

Technology engineering degrees blend theoretical and practical teaching methods. Your timetable will consist of lectures, seminars, and tutorials, as well as workshops, laboratories, and design sessions. Here are some of the core units delivered as part of most programs:

  • Fundamental engineering principles
  • Engineering mathematics
  • Computing for engineers
  • Introduction to computer-aided design (CAAD)
  • Understanding user requirements
  • Systems analysis and simulation
  • Quality control in technology engineering
  • Product design and development
