About Us

The Engineering Technology Leaders Institute (ETLI) is the dedicated annual meeting of stakeholders in engineering technology education. Participants come from community colleges, companies, professional organizations, and universities across the country. Engineering technology deans, chairs, coordinators, directors, faculty, employers, and advocates are invited to attend, participate, and network. The Institute promotes high-quality engineering technology education to support students, their families, and the companies they will join. Typical agenda topics include, but are not limited to, curriculum, accessibility, industry needs, advocacy, transferability, and licensing. (The group is not political but does try to inform governmental actions.)

The annual ETLI is hosted by the Engineering Technology Council (ETC) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), the international organization for engineering education. ASEE's mission is to advance innovation, excellence, and access at all levels of education for the engineering profession.

Engineering Technology (ET) is one branch of engineering education that focuses on contemporary practical applications of engineering principles and concepts. Graduates of these 2 and 4-year programs normally move into engineering careers in all industries. Notably, these programs have higher levels of diversity than traditional engineering programs.
