The Engineering Technology curriculum prepares the technician to assume a place on the engineering team as an assistant to the professional engineer. The program is two years in length and includes courses in engineering science, drafting, and related academic subjects. Skills are learned by completing projects in a variety of settings including campus labs, the computer-aided drafting (CAD) lab, and in the field completing projects in surveying.
It is the intent of the Engineering Technology program to:
Generate an understanding of the basic principles of science and engineering and utilize that knowledge in the solution of problems
Provide a basic education that will allow future educational growth
Develop confidence in those skills needed for employment in the field of engineering technology
A computer-aided drafting certificate is also available. The certificate emphasizes the CAD classes, preparing students for entry into the workforce.
