A.S. in Engineering Technology Curriculum

The Associate of Science degree in Engineering Technology with concentrations in Electronics, Instrumentation, and Process Plant Technology is designed to offer students an opportunity for specialized training and education in the fields of engineering and science technologies. The technicians employed in these fields understand the principles used by engineers and scientists, and are skilled in installing, maintaining, inspecting, producing, and distributing goods and services of a technical nature. They are members of engineering and science teams and often have important roles in planning, research, and supervision. The need for engineering and science technicians is growing and the shortage is increasing. Research has shown that on the average industry utilizes five technicians for each engineer or scientist.
