*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed transferable college credits from other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101 - Academic Development: Transitioning to College . This 1-credit course is designed to be taken in the first semester at CCBC. Students must provide an official transcript(s) from an accredited institution to document successful completion of college coursework for the ACDV 101 requirement to be waived.
** MATH 165
Pre-Calculus II or higher may be substituted for MATH 135
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 Engineering Technology; Computer-Aided Design; Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology; Geospatial Applications; and Land Surveying. Civil engineering involves the design construction and analysis of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, water supply systems, and waste water treatment facilities. Electro-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.
