The program will prepare students for immediate employment at the technical level in engineering design, drafting, surveying and construction. The program will provide theory and practice to move into the workforce with engineering consultants, surveying firms, state and local government, public works, construction companies, highway departments, and soil and material testing firms. Specific employment positions include land surveyor, engineering technician, project manager, municipal engineer, and environmental specialist. The program will consist of two specialization areas, a general track or surveying specialization. Students may choose to complete either track for an A.A.S. degree.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology program is a planned sequence of carefully developed college level courses designed to prepare students to work in the field of electronics and computer engineering technology. The program of study emphasizes the application of scientific, mathematic, and engineering knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities. Program graduates will receive an Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology Associate of Applied Science degree, qualifying them as engineering technicians with a specialization in computer engineering technology, electronics engineering technology, instrumentation and control technology, or telecommunications engineering technology.
The Electronics program is designed to prepare students for careers in electronics professions. Learning opportunities develop academic, technical, and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. Program graduates are to be competent in the general areas of communications, mathematics, computer literacy, and interpersonal relations. The program emphasizes a combination of electronics technology theory and practical application necessary for successful employment using both manual and computerized electronics systems. Electronics Technology program graduates receive an Electronics Technology Associate of Applied Science degree or diploma which qualifies them as electronics technicians with a specialization in biomedical instrumentation, communications electronics, computer electronics, general electronics, industrial electronics, or telecommunications electronics.
The Engineering Graphics Associate of Applied Science degree and Drafting diploma programs prepares students for employment in a variety of positions in the engineering graphics field, such as drafter or CAD operator based on the specialization area a student chooses to complete. The program provides learning opportunities which introduce, develop, and reinforce academic and technical knowledge, skills and attitudes required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. Additionally, the program provides opportunities to upgrade present knowledge and skills or retrain in drafting practices and software.
