The School of Engineering & Technology (SET) at the University of Washington Tacoma prepares our students to become future leaders in a variety of computer, electrical, mechanical and civil engineering fields. Our graduates go on to develop real world solutions in embedded systems, information technology, information systems, and computer software design, development and maintenance. The curriculum provides students the theoretical grounding to promote lifelong evolution in their field while also preparing them to become effective innovators and entrepreneurs. Our promise is to equip our students for success so that they may leave with broader personal horizons and the ability to leave a meaningful community impact.
Innovation and opportunity for all
Through innovative partnerships with area companies, SET helps students gain practical work experience and meet continually changing industry needs. SET provides ample services to attract and support students from diverse educational, economic and ethnic backgrounds.
SET was launched in 2001 through a combination of state and non-state investments. Support from private citizens, corporations and the larger community has contributed to building facilities, classrooms and labs for SET, enhancing what state funding provides in support of degree programs.
