Engineering Fundamentals (Certificate N0846)
Natural Science Division
Engineering and Engineering Technology are fields of study that require the application of scientific and engineering knowledge, methods, and technical skills in support of engineers and other professionals. Engineering technologists use engineering principles, physical sciences, basic Physics, Mathematics, Surveying, materials testing, computing, fabrication, technical documentation, specifications, and engineering reports. This program is for job seekers interested in Engineering and Engineering technology; as well as students interested in university programs in Engineering and Engineering technology.
This program incorporates the college-level English, Mathematics, Physics, critical thinking, and Engineering Technology skills needed by an entry-level Engineering Technology employee. Completion of this certificate may prepare graduates for technical work involving electrical circuits and systems, mechanical systems, Microsoft Excel, MATLAB, written communication, oral communication, functional analysis, project management, developing presentations, and client interactions. This program may prepares students for terminal positions as assistant engineers, engineering technicians and analysts; and may facilitate transfer into a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Technology or other related fields.
