Engineering Technologies (A.A.S.)


The Engineering Technologies program is geared for students interested in engineering-related careers, rather than pure engineering science, and is based on understanding the application of engineering principles. This program provides the education and skills required for gainful employment in the engineering technology field in areas that include civil engineering technologies, drafting and design, civil engineering construction management and land surveying. The Engineering Technologies program includes a balance of technologies, science, mathematics and general education courses required to complete​ an associate in applied science degree for employment in the field.

Program Goals

Students who have completed the program will be able to:

  • Understand and analyze construction materials, basic physical science principles and structural designs

  • Demonstrate and apply the basic principles of land, route and construction surveying

  • Apply the fundamentals of computer-aided drafting and design disciplines used in civil and mechanical engineering
