Total Number of Credits Required for Degree: 61-62*
*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101 in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) 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.
