Program Summary

The purpose of this program is to prepare students for employment or provide additional training for persons previously or currently employed in the manufacturing, medical, electronics, aerospace, or other related industries. This degree is a planned sequence of instruction consisting of the four specializations; electronics, quality, digital design and modeling, and biomedical systems with one common core. It is recommended that students complete the core before advancing to the courses in the next level of specialization. The coverage includes communication skills, technical competency, safe and efficient work practices and a combination of theory and laboratory activities to gain the necessary cognitive and manipulative skills to support engineering design, processes, production, testing, and product quality.

The 18 credit hour technical core has also been aligned with the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council's (MSSC) skills standards. The MSSC skill standards define the knowledge, skills, and performance needed for positions in manufacturing. After completing this core and the General Education requirements, the students will be eligible to take the exam for the MSSC Production Technician Certification. The graduates of the Engineering Technology Program can transfer to universities offering the B.S. degree in Engineering Technology.
