Integrated Engineering Technology
The Integrated Engineering Technology program readies students to diagnose and repair industrial equipment problems using proper technical assessment skills as well as core mechanical and electrical skills. The program provides students with a base knowledge in both the electrical and mechanical side of engineering technology. For this reason, Integrated Engineering Technology is also known as Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology or Mechatronics. Students are provided with a base knowledge in advanced skills such as programmable logic controllers (PLC’s), electronics and digital applications, process control, and materials sizing and selection.
Students completing the Integrated Engineering program will be suited for jobs as maintenance repair technicians, electrical maintenance technicians, or mechanical maintenance technicians. Students who continue to pursue a bachelor’s degree will be suited for jobs as electrical or mechanical engineering technologists or jobs that require both.
Any individual that has an interest in knowing how things work, determining how to fix things and make them run better, and has an interest in problem-solving may find the Integrated Engineering program an approachable career choice. The individual should have an interest in and an aptitude for mathematics and science.
The Associate of Applied Science degree is awarded upon completion of this program.
Opportunity for Transfer
NC State has over 40 agreements with four-year colleges and universities to provide a smooth transition for students who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Through university partnerships, some four-year courses are also offered on the NC State campus or online.
The Integrated Engineering Technology degree tailors nicely into a Bachelor of Science in Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology degree offered by Miami University.
