Courses in engineering technology are offered at the APSU Center @ Fort Campbell for both main campus and Fort Campbell students. Both daytime and evening courses are available to accommodate students who work while attending Austin Peay.

“We encourage students to take internships or other job opportunities in industry so that they can get practical experience while completing their degrees,” said Adel Salama, chair and professor of engineering technology at APSU.

In addition to the bachelor's degree program, APSU offers an associate degree in electronics technology, as well as a minor in engineering technology.
