Engineering Science: Technology Option

The associate in science degree program in Engineering Science: Technology Option Program introduces students to the principles, analysis and equipment of engineering.  The program was designed to serve two purposes for the student.  The first objective is occupational-based, in which the curriculum preAn engineering student working with equipment.pares graduates to work as technicians, engineering assistants, test equipment specialists, prototype fabricators as well as other positions sought after by engineering companies specializing in design, development, manufacturing and service. Second, the program is designed to maximize transferability to a four year engineering technology institute preparing students to continue on with their studies to achieve a four year degree.  In addition, the program emphasizes engineering fundamentals through “hands on” curriculum, including 2D & 3D modeling, software simulation and lab experiments. A minimum of 70 credits are required for the Electronic Technology Concentration at graduation. A minimum of 64 credit hours are required for the Mechanical  Technology Concentration at graduation.

Starting in the fall of 2014, any student enrolled in an associate degree program who is new to NECC and has no academic history at the college, must take at least one course designated as intensive in each of NECC’s six core academic skills in order to graduate. In most cases, the program’s core required courses include these intensive courses. Plan to see an advisor for more complete information about this graduation requirement.
