The Engineering Technologist program combines the foundational skills related to industrial engineering with the skills of computerized manufacturing. Students learn the planning, setup, monitoring, analyzing and controlling of integrated systems in order to improve efficiencies in a manufacturing environment, standardize and streamline processes, and initiate cost savings for businesses. Application in problem solving and automated technologies are emphasized.
The critical core manufacturing skills include: work cooperatively, work productively, listen effectively, demonstrate a positive attitude, maintain a safe work environment, demonstrate 3D-mathematical reasoning, think critically and adapt to change. Graduates are trained to work as members of teams consisting of engineers and production workers in a variety of industrial and manufacturing settings.
The following are typical jobs for graduates of this program:
- Mechanical Designer
- Industrial Engineering Technician
- Manufacturing Engineering Technician
- CNC Programmer
- Robotics and Material-Handling Technician
