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