Our History

The Department of Engineering Technology, traces its origin to about half a century ago, in Middletown campus. In that year, associate-degree programs in Electrical, Mechanical and Metallurgical technologies were initially offered under the auspices of Oxford's four-year Industrial Technology department, which later changed its name to Engineering Technology.


The associate degree department inherited several Industrial Education two-year programs.


The four-year engineering technology program housed in Oxford converted to a Manufacturing Engineering program.


The department merged a variety of industrial and engineering technology programs into two associate degree programs of Electrical Engineering Technology as well as Mechanical Engineering Technology.


The department received Ohio Board of Regents’ approval to offer a Plus Two baccalaureate completion program in Engineering Technology (Electro-Mechanical concentration). This program is designed to articulate with existing associate degree programs at Miami and from other two-year programs across the State.


Engineering Technology Department programs were accredited by ABET.


A Mechanical concentration was added to the BS program to begin Fall 2002.


The Electrical Engineering Technology associate degree was renamed Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology, and since 2013 the program is offering BS degree.


All of our accredited concentrations were reacreddited by ABET for the maximum possible years, six years.


All of ENT concentrations were reacreddited by ABET for the maximum possible years, six years.


Robotics Engineering Technology Concentration has been added to the ENT Bachelor of Applied Science Degree.


Manufacturing Foundations certificate has been added
