Engineering - Associate Degree Program Manager

Build Your Future on a Solid Foundation

An associate degree that provides you with the education and skills to begin your Engineering Career! 

If you are interested in learning basic engineering principals and design while developing technical, communication, and problem solving skills, an associate degree in Engineering is for you! You will be introduced to a broad spectrum of engineering disciplines including, civil, mechanical, and process control engineering.

With experiential learning opportunities through visits to plants, job sites, labs, and direct interaction with site supervisors, you will feel confident to pursue an entry-level career in engineering, with proficiencies in using the latest Computer-Aided Design, Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD-CAM) software to create drawings and diagrams.

If you wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree after earning your A.S. in Engineering, you will have the advantage of a smooth transition to most four-year universities.

Program Objectives

AEN graduates assist engineers and other professionals with the design, testing, and manufacturing of industrial machinery, tools, and mechanical equipment. Graduates create drawings of parts and prepare layouts of the assembly process. They also estimate equipment cost, labor costs, and equipment life, as well as troubleshoot and repair various types of mechanical devices.

The Engineering coursework emphasizes the application of basic engineering principles to machines and manufacturing. In addition to the standards and codes for mechanical design, students develop a practical knowledge of engineering mechanics, material properties, metrology (the science of weights and measures), theory of machines, and manufacturing processes. Through laboratory experiments, students learn how to record data, analyze results, and apply the results to suggest improvements to a product.

Students become proficient using the latest Computer-Aided Design, Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD-CAM) software to create drawings and diagrams. Those preparing for a CAD career may take EGR 278 CAD II or MET 278 SolidWorks. Local field trips augment classroom learning.

Student Learning Outcomes
  • AEN graduates should be able to:
  • Explain safety rules related to the manufacture and operation of tools and machinery
  • Perform foundational structural analyses.
  • Demonstrate fundamental knowledge of standard and advanced technology manufacturing processes that use electromechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic system components.
  • Read, interpret and develop schematics and detailed specifications that relate to tool and machine design.
  • Explain and apply the principles and limitations of measurement techniques and instruments.
