A.A.S. Degree (O)

The Design Engineering Technology curriculum is designed to provide students with a broad knowledge of basic engineering principles. An emphasis is placed on manufacturing, machining, and mechanical drafting and design. The program incorporates hands-on courses that provide students with experience in the modern technologies used in today's manufacturing sector. The program incorporates direct experience in CADD (computer-aided drafting and design), CNC (computer numerical control) machining, and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing). Careers in mechanical design, manufacturing, machining, maintenance, technical sales, and engineering management are likely areas of employment. The Design Engineering Technology program at the Owens Campus is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
