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.
Wake Tech academic programs (credit and non-credit) that are designed to lead to professional licenses are tied to North Carolina or national certifications. If you intend to pursue professional licenses outside North Carolina once you have completed your academic program at Wake Tech, please refer to the Professional Licensure section of the college's distance education authorization page for additional information.
