Engineering Technology Electrical Track (AAS)

Program Description

The Engineering Technology degree program will allow students to enter into a wide range of career fields within industrial settings after two years of study while also providing the option of university transfer upon graduation. After completing the first year of common courses in the Fundamentals of AutoCAD, DC circuits, machining, PC applications in technology, hydraulics/pneumatics and technical math and calculus, students will have the opportunity to focus on any track from three fields of engineering technology: electrical, mechanical and manufacturing. Students with employment or job shadow opportunity in a technical field will be able to do technology-based practicum or internships in an industrial setting.

Students will learn the required skills to take manufacturing or engineering designs from concept to completion. Opportunities for employment exist for engineering technicians in aerospace, electrical and electronic, maintenance, industrial, mechanical, electro-mechanical, environmental, and civil engineering fields.
