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.
Students who complete this track will be able to:
- Demonstrate a general knowledge of MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Technical Math (algebra, trigonometry, geometry, differential and integral calculus) hydraulics, blueprint reading.
- Demonstrate knowledge and application of 2D computer-aided drawing, orthographic views, line styles, dimensioning styles, auxiliary views, sectional views, GD&T, symbols, layout, and title block, 3D computer-aided solid modeling, basic tools, extrude tool, revolve tool, patterns, parts assembly, working drawings from solid models, interpreting engineering drawings, basic hydraulics and machines, stress analysis in structures and machines, and strength of materials.
