Associate of Science

The Engineering technology program prepares students for transfer to four-year institutions. In this transfer program, students focus on engineering applications and implementation, utilizing algebraic and trigonometry-based mathematical concepts. Students may choose electives which will follow either civil, electrical or mechanical engineering technology subject areas. Students should seek approval of course choices from their transfer school.

Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will:

  1. Interpret quantitative data using mathematical and scientific concepts in engineering applications.
  2. Recognize the implications and consequences of content and assumptions in solving engineering technology projects.
  3. Solve engineering equations through the use of contentspecific tools, software and simulations.
  4. Apply the principles of critical thinking and problem solving in the development of technical documents and engineering reports.
  5. Evaluate information sources and content in engineering problem solving using critical methods.
  6. Describe the interrelationships of culture and society in global environments.

Students must choose one of the following fields of study:

  1. Civil Engineering Technology  
  2. Electrical Engineering Technology  
  3. Mechanical Engineering Technology  

Transfer Opportunities

Articulation agreements are available for students to complete the Associate Degree and transfer to Clarion University. It is important that students consult with a counselor early in their program to develop a course plan most appropriate for the school to which they intend to transfer. See www.ccac.edu/articulation for details.
