Department of Engineering and Science Technology Programs
The Department of Engineering and Science Technology offers market-driven degrees and certificates in seven program areas:
Automated Manufacturing and Manufacturing Engineering Technology
The associate degree program in manufacturing engineering technology educates students in the areas of design and analysis of the resources, facilities, processes, and people involved in modern manufacturing. The bachelor degree program in automated manufacturing engineering technology prepares students with the skills necessary for management and implementation of manufacturing systems and processes.
Construction Engineering Technology
The coursework in the construction engineering technology program is intended to fill the widening gap between the professional designer and the construction trades. Graduates of this program work with owners and architects to transform conceptual ideas into functioning systems. They are responsible for completing the project safely, within time and budget constraints, and according to code specifications.
Corrosion Engineering Technology
The AAS in Corrosion Engineering Technology prepares students to evaluate corrosion of materials in the field and apply strategies for mitigating corrosion. The program strives to balance classroom instruction with relevant field and lab work. The Department of Defense has provided funds that will directly support the degree.
Electronic Engineering Technology
The associate degree program prepares individuals to work as technicians in developing, designing, manufacturing, testing, and servicing electrical and electronic equipment and systems. The bachelor degree program prepares individuals to work as technologists in applying specific principles to the analysis, design, development, implementation, and oversight of advanced electrical, electronic, and computer systems or processes.
The General Technology Area includes three fields of study: chemistry, technical physics, and software applications and computer programming. The area offers a Corrosion Technology Certificate that is available to any major but is specifically designed for engineering technology or engineering majors. The certificate enhances student knowledge of the fundamentals of corrosion technology, including forms of corrosion, types of corrosive environments, material selection, and corrosion control, testing, monitoring, and treatment.
Geographic and Land Information Systems (GIS/LIS)
GIS/LIS is an academic discipline based on computer solutions of geographic or spatially referenced data. It combines the technology of computer graphics (mapping) with the features of the earth (geodatabase). The use of GIS is rapidly becoming a major benefit for many disciplines that have a need to analyze and store geographic data. The program prepares graduates to enter the job market as GIS/LIS technicians for business and industry.
Mechanical Engineering Technology
The associate degree program prepares individuals to work as technicians in developing, designing, manufacturing, testing, and servicing mechanical equipment and systems. The bachelor degree program prepares individuals to work as technologists in applying specific principles to the analysis, design, development, implementation, or oversight of advanced mechanical systems or processes.
Surveying and Mapping
The bachelor degree program is an upper-level program designed to meet the formal education requirements for registration as a Professional Surveyor (P.S.) in the state of Ohio. If you like to collect your own spatial data and make maps, and if you like to work outside and inside with computers, then land surveying is a career for you.
