Engineering Technology offers a variety of associate degree and certificate options in two specialized tracks:
Today's manufacturing facilities and machinist shops rely on computer numerical control (CNC) computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) skills to create high quality products. These Advanced Manufacturing-related courses of Engineering Technology emphasize marketable skills.
This program involves the study of the theory and operation of electronic devices, including their application in analog circuits, digital circuits, industrial controls and electromechanical systems. We stress electronic principles and hands-on experience that can be applied to many aspects of advanced electronics.
In general, Engineering Technology degrees and certificates are designed to provide the technical know-how for immediate entry in the job market in two years or less. However, Richland College offers degrees in its engineering division that are specifically designed to transfer into four-year bachelor’s degree programs. Please note that Engineering courses for transfer are different from courses in Engineering Technology, and consult a Richland College STEM advisor if you have questions.
Richland College has the following transfer (articulation) agreements in place:
