Engineering

Building the Future

Led by a world-class faculty, our engineering programs are designed to deliver the highest-quality education and hands-on training in a wide variety of engineering disciplines. Our degree options range from Associate of Science, designed to quickly prepare and graduate our students to the workforce, to a Bachelor of Science, delivering a full 4-year degree designed to exceed industry expectations.


Bachelor of Science

Electronics can be found everywhere - from the coffee machine to your car. Our bachelor’s degree in Electronics Engineer Technology is designed to teach you the engineering and technology skills used to develop the devices that power our daily lives.
The degree offers students realistic, hands-on experience in engineering-related project management, teamwork and technical writing. Upon graduation, our students are equipped to enter the field as electronics engineers, quality control engineers, electronics systems engineers and more.

Associate in Arts

Our 2-year Associate in Arts degree pathways are designed to instill the highest-quality foundation in engineering technology principles. Upon completion of these degrees, students may continue to our bachelor's degree in electronics engineering technology. Past students have also utilized our associate’s degrees to earn their bachelor’s degrees at institutions such as MIT and Georgia Tech.
