Engineering Technology, Associate in Science

Upon successful completion of the Associate in Science Degree in Engineering Technology, the student demonstrates skills for employment as an engineering aid, computer-aided drafter, designer, surveyor, engineering technician, or other technical support position in the field of engineering. The student will have a basic understanding of the relationship between manufacturing technology, engineering materials and components, engineering measurements, engineering analysis, and engineering design. The student will be able to create industry-standard mechanical and civil drawings of advanced complexity.

Program Learning Outcomes

  1. Program completers demonstrate a basic understanding of the relationship between manufacturing technology, engineering materials and components, engineering measurements, engineering analysis, and engineering design.
  2. Program completers are able to create industry standard mechanical and civil drawings of advanced complexity.

General Education

Complete one of the following general education patterns:

  • San Joaquin Delta College Associate Degree General Education (AA-GE) pattern (24 units)
  • California State University General Education (CSU-GE) pattern (40 units)
  • Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum - CSU Version (IGETC-CSU) pattern (37 units)

Students are advised to double-count courses in the major to also satisfy general education when possible. Course subject credit will be awarded in satisfaction of major and lower division general education requirements, but the units will only be counted once in computing the total number of units for the degree.
