    The Associate of Applied Science in Engineering Technology degree is designed specifically for students seeking a two-year degree that equips them for entry-level technician jobs in the engineering field. Engineering technicians work in support of engineers completing drawings, contributing to design or overseeing manufacturing/construction processes. Engineering is a technical profession that applies science and mathematics to design, manufacturing, construction, environmental management and sustainability. Engineering technicians provide a critical link between professional engineers and the craftspeople doing the work.

    Program Outcomes

    At the completion of this program, students should be able to:

    • Demonstrate technical expertise in a minimum of three subject areas chosen from: engineering materials, applied mechanics, applied fluid sciences and fundamentals of electricity
    • Use graphics software to enhance creativity and productivity in engineering design
    • Calculate loads and determine stresses and displacements in elementary structural and mechanical systems
    • Working in a team, apply technical expertise in creating a product from concept to working prototype
    • Conduct standardized field and laboratory testing on concrete and soils
    • Use both traditional and modern electronic surveying equipment
    • Describe the ethical responsibilities of the engineering profession
    • Describe sustainability in engineering and how it impacts products, business and communities
