Engineering Technology Program
The Engineering Technology Program provides the practical mathematical and scientific knowledge that students need to apply and implement existing technology in the real world. Students will learn methods and procedures used in both mainstream industrial applications and specialized engineering organizations in order to improve operational processes as well as improve existing products and technological operations.
Associate of Applied Science Degrees under two of the emphases are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The concentrations in these two emphases are listed below. Use the links to view documents laying out requirements, program educational objectives (PEOs) and student outcomes (SOs):
- AAS ET-Electronics-Bench Technician
- AAS ET-Electronics-Biomedical Equipment Technician
- AAS ET-Electronics-Defense Contractor Technician
- AAS ET-Telecommunications
Upon completing one of our many associate of applied science degrees and/or certificates of achievement, graduates can pursue employment opportunities such as defense contracting, bench and biomedical equipment technicians, slot and self-service device technicians or enter into related fields ranging from power utility operations and maintenance to theatre technology and telecommunications, to name just a few. While many engineering related occupations would require more advanced degrees, there are many entry-level positions available.
