Associate Degree in Engineering

Top Course Studies in Engineering

Engineering

The culture of the modern world is defined by its technology. Those with an associate’s degree in engineering and technology have more than just valuable skills that are sought after in the labor market. They are also prepared to manage the basic cultural tools that shape modern society.

What is an associate’s degree in engineering & technology? Most of these degrees are two-year programs that focus on understanding and troubleshooting problems with technological devices. These programs allow students to acquire a broad set of technical skills that can be applied to many different industries. Students gain an understanding of the practical applications of engineering tools and techniques. Areas of study include electronics, computer programming, computer aided design, and networks.

Graduates have learned how to maintain and repair equipment. Through classroom lectures and lab exercises, their problem solving and practical analytical reasoning abilities are reinforced. Students also develop verbal and written communication skills that are needed to follow work instructions and read engineering drawings. The use of standard safety equipment and best practices in the work environment are also taught.

The cost of an associate’s degree in engineering and technology will depend on the institution. Tuition and fees can be determined by contacting a university’s admissions department. Most programs will require at least two full years of study to complete. Students should be prepared to provide for their own housing and living expenses.

High tech industries that depend on machinery and devices need the skills graduates provide. In manufacturing, graduates find employment as test engineer technicians, quality engineers and manufacturing technicians. Hospitals depend on those who can maintain and repair their medical equipment, and firms that specialize in communications technology need employees capable of working with computers and network gear.

It is important to consider all of the options available for earning an associate’s degree, and now is the time to gather all of the information possible. Working students and those living in other countries may find that the flexible schedule offered by online coursework suits their needs.
