Program Summary

*** THIS PROGRAM IS NO LONGER ADMITTING STUDENTS INTO THE MEDICAL QUALITY SYSTEMS (BIOM) SUBPLAN. ***

This degree is a sequence of instruction with three specializations to choose from: electronics, quality (Lean and Six Sigma), and digital design and modeling. All engineering technology students take a common core of six classes (18 credit hours) that gives them backgrounds in safety, quality assurance, metrology, CAD, electronics, and materials. Students will start taking classes in their specialization right away along with their core and general education courses. There are opportunities to gain industry certifications, attend guest lectures, participate in field trips to local employers, and network with other students. Internships are also available and required for electronics and digital design and modeling.

Our mission is to provide hands-on, relevant coursework in a supportive and creative learning environment. We will prepare students for employment, or provide additional training for currently employed students, in manufacturing, healthcare, electronics, aerospace, or other related industries.

The 18 credit hour technical core has also been aligned with the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council's (MSSC) Certified Production Technician (CPT) certification. After completing the core courses, students will be eligible to take the four exams for CPT certification. The graduates of the Engineering Technology A.S. Program can transfer to universities and colleges offering the B.S. degree in Engineering Technology.

The Academic Pathway is a tool for students that lists the following items:
o the recommended order in which to take the program courses
o suggested course when more than one option exists
o which semester each course is typically offered
o if the course has a prerequisite
o courses that may lead to a certificate (if offered in the program)
