Emphasis in Maintenance Studies course work emphasizes maintenance repair and problem solving skills.
Applied Engineering Technology: A course of study that prepares the students to use basic engineering principles and technical skills to solve technical problems in various types of industry. The course work emphasizes analytical and problemsolving skills. The curriculum includes courses in safety, math, physics, electricity, engineering technology, and technologyspecific specialty areas. Graduates should qualify for employment in a wide range of positions in research and development, manufacturing, sales, design, inspection, or maintenance. Employment opportunities exist in automation, computer, electrical, industrial, or mechanical engineering fields, where graduates will function as engineering technicians.
Course work includes mathematics, natural sciences, engineering sciences and technology.
Graduates should qualify to obtain occupations such as technical service providers, materials and technologies testing services, process improvement technicians, engineering technicians, industrial and technology managers, or research technicians.
Upon successful completion of this program, the student should be able to:
- Conduct machining, fabrication, robotics and welding operations
- Analyze industrial systems electrical diagrams, circuits and components
- Demonstrate the ability to safely and correctly maintain/repair industrial systems/components
In addition to DCCC requirements and course objectives, there are professional standards that encompass communication, motor skills, sensory and cognitive ability and professional conduct that are essential for the competent study and practice of this program.
