Applied Engineering and Design Technologies
These programs prepare students to become technicians in a variety of STEM-based disciplines. Technicians perform quality assurance testing; complete design drawings; and carry out diagnostic, troubleshooting, and maintenance procedures on equipment. Solving problems, collecting and analyzing data, and conducting experiments are all part of the technician's role in engineering and design. Students interested in this area are typically hands-on learners who enjoy challenges and understand the power of teamwork.
