Engineering Technology, Associate in Science


Effective: Spring, 2016

The Engineering Technology, A.S. (EGRT) program is designed for students planning to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Technology, typically B.S.E.T., at a four-year college or university.

The Engineering Technology, A.S. (EGRT) program may also serve students who have an interest in exploring careers in practical engineering involving mathematics, science and technology, but who do not necessarily plan to pursue careers as professional engineers.  The course work emphasizes a solid foundation in college level mathematics and sciences, which will transfer to a wide variety of schools and programs, along with an opportunity to explore a variety of technical fields.

Many courses in this program have prerequisites and successful transfer will depend on careful planning of STEM electives. Students are strongly advised to meet with an Engineering or Engineering Technology faculty advisor or to consult with the Transfer Office prior to enrolling in this program or selecting courses.

Program Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this program, students should be able to:

  • An ability to apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology to engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge.
  • Apply Engineering Technology related theory, experiments and real world experience to interpret, analyze and solve current and emerging technical problems.
  • An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments.
  • Communicate clearly and persuasively with technical and non-technical environment in oral, written and graphical forms.
