Engineering Technology is that part of the engineering field which blends scientific and engineering knowledge with technical skills in research, development and production. CSM offers the General Education, mathematics, science, engineering, and many of the technical courses required to meet lower division requirements in Engineering Technology and prepare the student for transfer to a baccalaureate institution for a degree in Engineering Technology. The Associate degree alone prepares students for employment as engineering technicians, who work with or under the direction of engineers.
Career opportunities exist largely with manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment, aircraft/aircraft parts, machinery, scientific instruments, chemical, motor vehicles, fabricated metal products, and primary metals. Non-manufacturing opportunities exist with engineering and architectural firms, research and testing facilities, and business services in which engineering work is done on a contract basis for organizations in other sectors of the economy. Additional opportunities for employment exist in the communications, utilities, and construction industries; and with federal, state and local government agencies.
