Students may start with the Mechanical/Manufacturing CAD or Quality Assurance certificate and progress towards the A.A.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology while working in their chosen field. The certificate program teaches basic skills and allows students to participate in the Cooperative Education (Co-op) program. The Co-op program provides classroom and industrial experience and helps students pay the cost of their college education.
