    Abstract

    In recent years, various professional societies or individuals have put forth statements outlining how engineering and engineering education could improve or adapt to better meet the needs of society. Typically, such studies do not specifically address engineering technology's role as a part of the educational spectrum. While building on these previous works, the ASME Vision 2030 efforts provide additional insights to both the value of mechanical engineering technology but also to how it should change to provide an even better education for its students. This paper presents suggestions towards such change. While focused on mechanical engineering technology, the suggestions and data in the paper can be extrapolated to engineering technology education in all its disciplines. The strengths of engineering technology graduates as engineering practitioners and as implementers of technology; job-ready and focused on applied engineering, are a partial answer to what industry has told academia about the current needs of industry.
