Degree: Associate of Applied Science
The General Engineering Technology program is designed to prepare individuals to meet the growing needs of high-technology industries for trained technicians. Courses in this applied science degree are designed to develop competent engineering technicians who, upon graduation, will have the academic and technical preparation to enter demanding workforce positions, to pursue additional on-the-job training, or to enroll in an advanced program of study in engineering technology. Students in this program should consult with the engineering technology faculty advisor to select career electives.
Electronics Technician, Electronics Laboratory Technician, Engineering Aide, Sales Engineer, Computer Technician, Industrial Engineering Technician, Industrial Electronics Technician, and Design Engineering Technician.
In addition to the admission requirements established for the college, entry into this program requires proficiency in English, reading, and mathematics. Students who do not meet entry requirements, or whose placement test scores indicate a need for further preparation, will be placed in the appropriate developmental courses in English, mathematics, and/or reading. These developmental course credits do not apply toward the degree. Students required to take two or more developmental courses will need additional semesters to complete the degree.
The General Engineering Technology Degree follows general graduation requirements as stated in the catalog.
Graduates of the General Engineering Technology program should have the ability to:
- Understand the fundamental concepts of current and voltage, both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC)
- Become familiar with functionality of electrical components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, transformers, transistors, electro-mechanical, optical and integrated circuits
- Analysis of circuits to determine functionality
- Understand digital logic circuits and their applications and analyze operation
- Perform troubleshooting on an electrical circuit to determine faults and corrective action
- Ability to use technical documentation for analysis, troubleshooting and repair
- Communicate technical concepts and status in both verbal and written form
