Career InformationThe Associate of Applied Science Degree in Engineering Technology offers two areas of specialization: Manufacturing Engineering Technology and Civil Engineering Technology. Manufacturing Engineering Technicians work closely with mechanical and manufacturing engineers to design mechanical components and assemblies, tooling, manufacturing processes, and machine systems for industry. They also help solve problems on the production line and work to ensure product accuracy and quality.
The Certificate Program in Engineering Technology offers three options: Rapid Product Development, Architectural Design, and Surveying. In all three areas, you will receive specific skills training to prepare you for entry level positions in business and industry. Though employers desire the AAS degree for entry level employment, many students take the AAS in one area and a certificate in another option to improve their employability. You may also pursue a job upgrade with your present employer by earning a certificate.
Career Options Include:
What Will I LearnThe Manufacturing Engineering Technology degree option prepares you for industrial careers requiring skills in drafting, CAD, mechanical design, 3D solid modeling, rapid product development, manufacturing processes, machining, fluid power, and CNC Programming.
The Civil Engineering Technology degree option prepares you for the surveying, construction, or architectural fields by giving you skills in math, physics, surveying, and civil and architectural design.
We focus on the skills and knowledge required in today’s changing job market. You will receive intensive training on state-of-the-art Computer Aided Design workstations and other modern, up-to-date equipment. The program is housed in the Gorsich Advanced Technology Center at PCC. If you plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the fields of mechanical/manufacturing engineering technology, civil engineering technology, or architecture, please consult with a PCC transfer advisor to determine the transferability of courses.
