The attitude of the engineering technology (ET) students in terms of their educational backgrounds, orientation, and experiences in ET programs, was surveyed. The survey was used to measure attitudinal differences in the areas including, career goals and elements for career decisions, preparation in high school and college, and confidence in ET knowledge/skills and elements for success. Many ET majors had a career goal in engineering instead of engineering technology, however, 42% of ET majors preferred a job title of engineer. An important result shows that those students with higher cumulative GPA at CMU spent fewer hours per week at study compared to those with lower GPA.
