Mission Statement

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 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 Electrical Automation and Robotics Technology graduates keep industry running by fixing, adapting, programming, and maintaining the automated machines and systems used in industry. The hands on/class room/lab learning approach used in the Engineering Technology Department is the best skill learning approach in higher education.

Programs

Students can choose from two degree plans. The Associate in Pre-Engineering (APE) degree and Associate of Science (AS) in Pre-Engineering degree. APE is comprised of math, science, and engineering courses- normally taken by first and second year students in a four-year program, along with a small number of general education courses. In this program students can choose one of three emphases in engineering, Biological and Chemical, Civil and Mechanical, Computer and Electrical. For the AS degree students  can take appropriate general education courses and carefully choose elective courses related to the engineering discipline they are going to pursue. This option normally takes longer, unless the student has advanced placement or concurrent enrollment from high school; however, it has the added benefit of possible waiving of general education requirements at the student’s follow-on school.
