Engineering Technology Program

 

This program is changed to Engineering Technology 094.1 as of the Fall 2014 semester. Students enrolled in 094 may complete that program or move to one of the fields of student in 094.1 program. To review 094 requirements, see the program’s graduation checksheet. Students should discuss these options with their advisors.

Associate of Science (094.1)

The Engineering technology program prepares students for transfer to four-year institutions. In this transfer program, students focus on engineering applications and implementation, utilizing algebraic and trigonometry-based mathematical concepts. Students may choose electives which will follow either civil, electrical or mechanical engineering technology subject areas. Students should seek approval of course choices from their transfer school.

Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will:

  1. Interpret quantitative data using mathematical and scientific concepts in engineering applications.  
  2. Recognize the implications and consequences of content and assumptions in solving engineering technology projects.
  3. Solve engineering equations through the use of content-specific tools, software and simulations.
  4. Apply the principles of critical thinking and problem solving in the development of technical documents and engineering reports.
  5. Evaluate information sources and content in engineering problem solving using critical methods.
  6. Describe the interrelationships of culture and society in global environments 

Students must choose one of the following fields of study:
A: Civil Engineering Technology  
B: Electrical Engineering Technology
C: Mechanical Engineering Technology
