Abstract: Graduate-level engineering and technology programmes are designed to meet the requirements of the local business, industry, utilities and the general demand. In Trinidad and Tobago, the demand for technologists is high. To meet this demand, two Engineering Technology degree programmes have been established as a joint venture between the regional University of the West Indies (UWI) and the national University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT). This paper presents the highlights of this experience, global perspectives on technologists, a comparison of technology and traditional engineering programmes, professional registration practices and the acceptance of such graduates by the industry.
