About Engineering Technology Certificates

Manufacturing Processes and CNC Programming. The certificate program covers aspects of needed skills and knowledge for manufacturing. Students will gain an understanding of various materials characteristics and applications, manufacturing processes, and machining techniques. Students will learn about CNC systems, controls, operation, set-up, hand-compiled programs such as G-code, and CAM programs.

CAD Prototyping, and 3D Printing. The certificate program covers aspects of 3D Modeling that businesses are utilizing more prominently to cut costs, produce stronger and lighter parts, reduce time to market and improve efficiency. Students will gain an understanding of this technology that will be important to job seekers and professionals across the 21st century economy. Working with AutoCAD software, students will create and edit simple drawings, translate file formats for articulation between different systems, and utilize 3 dimensional printers to create prototypes.

Pre-Engineering Math and Software Applications. The certificate program covers aspects of a preparation for students interested in joining an engineering discipline. Students will acquire basic math skills needed for engineering majors. Engineering problem solving techniques and tools are introduced. Using relevant engineering software, students will be able to analyze, model, and present engineering solutions to real-life applications.

Digital Logic Systems. The certificate program covers aspects of the foundational knowledge in basic electricity and digital systems. Circuit analysis techniques and troubleshooting skills will be gained.
