Engineering technology emphasizes the application of scientific and engineering techniques to a variety of real-world problems. Application is the key word in this definition, in that engineering technology emphasizes practical applications as well as theory. Engineering technologists work in the job spectrum between the engineer and the skilled technician, with responsibilities closest to those of the engineer.
