The college offers a two year, Associate in Applied Science degree in Engineering Technology with two areas of concentration: Highway and Building Construction, and Drafting Design and CAD. The college also offers an associate in Applied Science degree in Networking Administration.
This program has a very open architecture to permit students to concentrate their technical electives in the area of their interest, either in Construction or the Computer Aided Drafting & Design field.
In the construction option technical electives will include subject matter in areas such as: Architectural CAD, Soils and Materials Testing, AutoCAD and Microstation CAD and surveying. Students who elect the construction concentration often do the following jobs after graduation: project inspection, materials inspection and testing, CAD operation, drafting, project design, preparation of project specifications, project supervision, technical sales, surveying, and project estimation. Usually these jobs are with construction or contracting firms, architectural and engineering firms, surveying firms, drafting and design shops, government agencies, pre-fabrication manufacturing firms, and similar.
Computer Aided Drafting & Design Option
In the Drafting Design CAD area technical electives will include subject matter in mechanical design, AutoCad and Unigraphics CAD, and material properties. Students who elect the Drafting Design concentration often do the following jobs after graduation: CAD operation and supervision, design drafting, preparation of specifications, product or project design, technical sales, quality control, materials inspection and testing, and management. Usually these jobs are with manufacturing firms, engineering firms, government agencies, drafting and design shops, machine welding shops, foundries, product development firms, and similar industries.
