Engineering Technology AAS

The Engineering Technology Program uses applied training techniques in computer aided drafting, surveying & mapping (Civil option), Solid Modeling and CNC Machining (Mechanical option), and other related skill sets. Computer technology is opening new educational and employment horizons and LCSC’s Engineering Technology program maintains close contact with industry leaders to track the latest opportunities. The program’s computer equipment maximizes industry relevant, “hands-on” training for each student. Cooperative professional/technical education (with local employers) may be included in the program with advisor approval; furthering the effort to maintain the relevant education students and employers need. The Engineering Technology Program combines laboratory experience with general education and technical education courses. Field trips to manufacturing plants and construction sites may be arranged during the program. Students are required to purchase necessary drafting equipment, textbooks, and reference materials. A Bachelor of Applied Science degree is offered upon completion of the A.A.S. degree

For students choosing to specialize their studies, one of three optional endorsements may be selected. In the second year of the program, students electing not to take the General (Traditional) Program may direct their study emphasis towards Geographic Information Systems, Civil or Mechanical disciplines, which would result in an A.A.S. degree in Engineering Technology with emphasis in the selected discipline.

Entrance requirements for degree seeking students in the Engineering Technology program include:

  • Compass scores (or equivalent testing) of 68 or higher in English, 73 or higher in Reading, and ALEKS score of 30 or higher in Math (Algebra), or qualify for MTHPT-137, ENGL-101, and COMM-101.
  • Enrollment priority will be given students on the basis of student’s enrollment date.

Upon completion of the Engineering Technology A.A.S. degree, the student will possess technical skills in chosen areas that may include:

  • Computer Aided Drafting using AutoCAD software
  • Civil Drafting
  • Architectural Drafting
  • Structural Drafting
  • Surveying
  • Mechanical 3D Design using AutoCAD and Solid Works software
  • CNC Machine Programming
  • Geographic Information Systems

In addition to these drafting skills, the student will be able to demonstrate:

  • Oral and written communication skills required in a drafting office.
  • Basic math, physics and problem-solving skills.
