  • Main Content

    The technology/design option prepares the graduate for placement in the world of manufacturing. A student graduating with this option should have mastered the basic skills appropriate for the design, development, manufacturing and sale of consumer products. Students should enter the field at the middle-management level. The breadth of preparation in the design option provides a broad foundation from which to build and progress.

    GPA Requirements

    The GPA requirement for transfer students who plan to major in technology/design option, is the same as that for admission to Eastern, a 2.00 cumulative GPA in all college-level course work.

    Graduation from the Technology/Design Program requires a 2.50 cumulative GPA in all departmental course work.

    Graduation from the university requires a 2.00 cumulative GPA for Eastern Washington University course work, other than the major courses.

    Required program credits- 83 credits
    Supporting credits- 45 credits
    Total credits for above option- 128 credits

    Note: Including University requirements, the above program requires a minimum of 180 credits, an average of 15 credits per quarter for a 12 quarter, four-year program. The 180 credits are based upon the following assumptions:
    a. Students have had one year of high school drafting. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to take ENGR 102 Introduction to Engineering Graphics (4).
    b. Students will have satisfed University Competencies. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to complete up to six more credits of classes. (See University Competencies in the university's catalog.)
