Choosing Engineering Technology will provide you with clear, progressive steps toward meeting your educational and career goals.
Graduates from Engineering Technology can work as Maintenance Technicians in manufacturing or as Assistant Engineers, Project Supervisors, Traffic Engineers, Water/Waste-Water Technicians, Maintenance Supervisor/Managers, and Quality Technician/Supervisors. Many graduates continue their education by obtaining a Bachelor of Applied Science degree.
Along the way to your Associate degree, you can obtain College Credit Certificates and industry certifications to help you get a head start in your career path.
CF offers an A.S. in Engineering Technology with two specialization paths. The Quality Specialization is designed for employment in the medical and manufacturing industries as well as the Advanced Manufacturing Specialization.
We offer four college credit certificates which students can earn along the way toward their associates degree. Click on the listing on the navigation bar. Mechatronics is our newest certificate!
This program is an excellent educational opportunity for students interested in starting, or looking for new career growth opportunities in the field of manufacturing. Graduates of the program will be highly employable by local manufacturing companies who are always competing for the most qualified people for their workforces.
Linking the associate degree in Engineering Technology to bachelor's degree programs, the forecasted shortage of graduating engineers, and the tuition reimbursement programs offered by many of the local businesses make this program a great way for students to get their career off on the right track.
