Associate of Science
Engineering Technology (A.A.S.)
Students will gain the knowledge and skills they need to build a strong foundation in standard engineering technology programs, including manufacturing, welding, design, and mechanical engineering technology.
Students work with machinery in the Manufacturing Processes Lab.
See What It Takes
Students will expand and apply their knowledge of fundamental math, science, and engineering principles. They will design components, systems, or processes necessary to meet product specifications and design constraints. Students will demonstrate their understanding of modern manufacturing processes.

Even though an associate’s degree in Engineering Technology takes fewer credits, students can develop and use the techniques, skills, and modern tools necessary for engineering practice. They will learn to function well within a multidisciplinary team and communicate effectively in oral and written formats.
