Engineering and Applied Technology

  • Sample alt text

Engineering is a mindset, as much as it is a skillset. You learn to understand complex processes, and thus how the world works. And then, you gain the ability to change it.

Engineering and Applied Technology Programs

Of course, you will master technical skills when you complete one of NOVA’s Engineering & Applied Technology programs. Technology shapes our lives, and you can be among those who take us all in a new direction. Just as importantly, those skills – problem-solving, project management, innovation, forward-thinking – can translate into nearly any field.
