So I have plans to transfer to Cal Poly Pomona in Southern California next year. They offer a bachelors of science in engineering technology. I thought this sounded like a trade school degree until I spoke to one of the professors in that department. He made it seem that this degree was equivalent to an Engineering degree but with a focus on real world application of engineering concepts rather than derivation of them. Problem is....everyone I have asked in 'the real world' has never heard of such a degree and everyone relates it to a technician trade school degree. Does anyone here have this degree? It sounds really interesting and right up my alley, unless of course its isn't respected by employers.
