Academic and Career Advising

Program Description
The Associate of Applied Science degree in Engineering Technology with emphases in either “Product Design Engineering Technology (PDET), “Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET), or “Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MFET) provides the student with a solid foundation in electronics theory and application, as well as established and emerging technologies. This program is designed for students who intend to enter the work force after obtaining the AAS degree or transfer to other USHE institutions. The courses emphasize mastery of theory as well as attainment of skills and competencies through Lab experiences that are vital to workforce needs.

Career Opportunities
Students who complete one of these Associates of Applied Science degrees in PDET, MET, or MFET can pursue careers in many areas such as research and development, Industrial Automation, space, defense, government, consumer products, and many more. Examples of occupations include mechanical drafters, mechanical designers, product designers, CNC programmers, tool designers, production planners, quality technicians, manufacturing and production technicians, and many more.

Transfer/Articulation Information
The degree includes a carefully designed pathway that will allow a student to efficiently transfer to WSU or UVU to complete a 4 year degree in Engineering Technology.
