My son is considering engineering technology, in a large part because he is a hands-on learner, and told me he really doesn't want to sit behind a desk all day. Theoretical analysis is not that interesting to him.
Can someone tell me what the workload is like for engineering technology (a BS, not an AS)? Is the time devoted to it similar to that to earn a BSE, or is it different?
Is the curriculum more lab-based than that of a BSE degree, or is there about the same number of labs?
If anyone who has really seen both close up can describe the differences between the workloads and the curriulums, that would be helpful.
By the way, please don't comment on whether a BSE degree is better than a BSET degree. I've seen 25-page long arguments about that on this board, and that's not the issue I'm asking about.
