Associate of Applied Science


The Integrated Engineering Technology program readies students to diagnose and repair industrial equipment problems using proper technical assessment skills as well as core mechanical and electrical skills.  The program provides students with a base knowledge in both the electrical and mechanical side of engineering technology.  For this reason, Integrated Engineering Technology is also known as Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology, or Mechatronics.  Students are provided with a base knowledge in advanced skills such as programmable logic controllers (PLC’s), electronics and digital applications, robotics, and process control. 

Students completing the Integrated Engineering program will be suited for jobs as maintenance repair technicians, electrical maintenance technicians, or mechanical maintenance technicians.  Students who continue to pursue a bachelor's degree will be suited for jobs as electrical or mechanical engineering technologists or jobs that require both.  See the program webpage for transfer opportunities.

Any individual that has an interest in knowing how things work, determining how to fix things and make them run better and has an interest in problem solving may find the Integrated Engineering Technology program an approachable career choice.  The individual should have an interest in and an aptitude for mathematics and science.

The Associate of Applied Science degree is awarded upon completion of this program. 


Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the program, the student will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate an ability to apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of integrated engineering to narrowly defined troubleshooting activities.
  2. Apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge.
  3. Interpret, edit, and troubleshoot automation hardware, systems and software.

Associate of Applied Science


The mechanical engineering technician may be involved with a variety of tasks on the job. These tasks might involve preparing design specifications, production analysis, and the installation, maintenance, and operation of machines, tools, products, and devices used in manufacturing, processing or power generation. Other job functions may include working as a laboratory assistant, designer, estimator, or technical sales.

Although most mechanical engineering technicians find jobs in manufacturing industries, they may also work for government agencies or in research and development activities. Jobs may be situated in the production shop, the design engineering offices, research laboratories, in the field traveling to on-site locations, or in technical sales.

The individual that has an interest in knowing how things work, determining how things may work better, and who has an interest in problem solving may find Mechanical Engineering Technology an appropriate career choice. The individual should also have an interest in and aptitude for mathematics and science.

The student in Mechanical Engineering Technology will study engineering drawing, mechanical design technology, machine design technology, and materials science. The student will also be introduced to computer-aided drafting, industrial electricity and electronics, alternative energy, and manufacturing processes. In addition, this program is transferable to several institutions in Ohio that have B.S. degrees in Engineering Technology.

The Associate of Applied Sciences degree is awarded upon completion of this program.


Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this program, graduate will:

  1. Demonstrate the use of computer aided engineering design, suing 2D and 3D drawings, sketching and solid modeling.
  2. Properly select materials based on their physical properties.
  3. Properly select machine elements using analysis of stress and properties for structure, frames, beams, and columns.
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of fluid mechanics.
  5. Demonstrate basic understanding of industrial electricity applied to power, circuits and programming controllers.
  6. Work in teams to apply critical thinking skills and engineering concepts to complete real world projects.
  7. Apply computer programming that generates code to operate robotic equipment.
