Program Electives - 6 Credits
Select at least 6 credits from any of the following disciplines: AIRC (HVAC), CADD, CAMM, CONT, EGNT, ELEI, EMET, GEOA, OSHT, and SURV.
Degree also requires completion of EITHER the Civil Engineering , Mechanical Engineering , or Electrical/Electronic Engineering Option
Total Number of Credits Required for Degree: 64-65*
*If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed transferable college credit(s) at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree by 1 credit. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
The Engineering Technology program is designed to prepare the student for an entry-level position in the engineering field, generally working at the direction of an engineer. Engineering technicians use the principles and theories of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems not requiring calculus in research and development, manufacturing, sales, construction, inspection, maintenance, and electronics. Their work involves the more practical side of science and engineering and often requires the use of computer software including 3D modeling.
The A.A.S. degree is offered with civil, mechanical, and electrical/electronic engineering technology options. Civil engineering involves the design construction and analysis of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, water supply systems, and waste water treatment facilities. Mechanical engineering involves the design, maintenance and analysis of equipment, engines, tools, and various machines from robotics used in manufacturing to climate control equipment. Electrical/electronic engineering involves the design, maintenance and analysis of electronic instrumentation and controls, circuits, electronic communications, process controls, robotics and electrical equipment.
