Engineering Technology

Welcome to Engineering Technology!

The Mission of the Engineering Technology Department is to prepare graduates to work in high demand, very technical, vastly diverse, automated industries that provide products and services to keep our state and national economy running.

  • The Electrical Automation and Robotics Technology graduates keep industry running by fixing, adapting, programming, and maintaining the automated machines and systems used in industry.
  • The Pre-Engineering graduates are prepared to go into upper level engineering fields at local universities in the state.
  • The Mechatronics graduates are focused on designing the newest machines and automated systems needed by industry.

The hands on/class room/lab learning approach used in the Engineering Technology Department is the best skill learning approach in higher education.

The Mechatronics program currently offers an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree. An Associate in Applied Science degree is known as a “job ready” degree. The majority of classes you will take will be major specific classes and you will only have six general education classes to complete. The AAS degree requires a total of 64 credits. This is approximately 17 classes depending on the level of math and english you begin at. This type of degree will give you the experience needed to get a job and start a career. Beginning Fall 2015, we will be adding a Bachelor of Science degree!  Read More
