Program Information:

The focus of the Engineering Technology A.S. And certificate programs at GCSC is to prepare students for careers within the following technical industries: Alternative Energy, Engineering Technology, Drafting and Design, Computer Integrated and Advanced Manufacturing. The A.S Engineering Technology is in the Technology Department which offers additional technical degrees and certificates in Building Construction, Digital/Multi-Media, Computer and Network Security, and Network Services.

The 18 credit hour technical core of this degree is closely aligned with the national Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Production Technician (CPT) industry certification. After completing this core, students will be prepared to take the MSSC assessment for the CPT Certification. Students who have already earned the MSSC-CPT will receive 15 articulated credit-hours towards the Engineering Technology degree. The Engineering Technology Associate in Science degree program is fully transferable to four year degree granting institutions.

Most programs are designed for full and part time students and feature both traditional instruction as well as hands-on technical instruction in up-to-date modern labs. All programs incorporate state of the art technology related to their prospective fields. Emphasis is placed on computer literacy, practical application, both in class and via Cooperative Education (COOP), and technical competence.
