Engineering Technology (AAS) - Electrical Systems Emphasis

Program Information

The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Engineering Technology program is designed to provide skills required of entry-level engineering technicians. Students are provided with the fundamentals of physics, engineering, computer hardware, programming, engineering design fundamentals, and computer software program usage. A solid foundation in mathematics, science, communication skills, humanities, and social sciences provides a well-rounded curriculum.

In addition to the Electrical Systems emphasis, the following Engineering Technology program tracks are available at GCC:

Program Notes

You must earn a grade of C or better in all courses required within the program.

The credit hour range for Program Prerequisites is subject to change depending on your educational experience. PHY111 and PHY112 are strongly recommended if you have not completed one year of high school physics with a grade of C or better.

You must complete 16-20 credits of Restricted Electives (RE) base on your area of Engineering and interests. Courses used to satisfy other required areas may not be used to complete this program requirement. Some RE courses may have prerequisites/corequisites that are not included in the total program credits. If you are interested in taking courses with additional requisites you will need to adjust your academic plan to include these courses OR obtain permission from your instructor to waive these requirements.

If you are transferring to a university:

  1. Consultation with the Program Director is recommended to optimize transferrable coursework.
  2. Select general education requirement courses that have [SB, HU] with [L, C, G, and/or H] designation values.
  3. Be mindful of your GPA as there may be minimum requirements for admission into engineering programs.
  4. Complete an AS degree at GCC, as these requirements overlap with those for AAS in Engineering Technology, so most students will be able to apply for both Associates degrees.

Apply for graduation when enrolling for your final semester.
