Academic Programs

Multicraft Technology - Associate in Applied Science (061)

Graduates of the Multicraft Technology program are prepared to enter the work force as engineering technicians, field service engineers, plant maintenance technicians and application engineers or to move into supervisory positions. Graduates may continue their education at many colleges and universities and earn an advanced degree. Multicraft technicians combine knowledge of mechanical engineering technology with knowledge of electrical and electronic circuits to maintain, design, develop, test, and manufacture electronic and computer-controlled mechanical systems, such as robotic assembly machines. They also operate these machines in factories and other work sites. Maintenance technicians will work independently and with other plant personnel to perform preventative, predictive and routine maintenance tasks. They will troubleshoot issues, repair failures of production and facilities equipment, and ensure maximum equipment efficiency and effectiveness. Their work often overlaps that of both electrical and electronic engineering technicians and mechanical engineering technicians. The program content is constantly updated so that students stay current and competitive in today's market place. This degree allows the student to choose electives towards one student-selected specialization in Alternative Energy**, Electrical, Electronics, HVAC, or Welding. Graduates of the program may pursue certification in their field.

Work and Employment

Graduates of this program are prepared to work in industry, instrumentation, design, field service, and service laboratories. Graduates may supervise technicians in the assembly, installation, repair, maintenance, calibration, and modification of electro-mechanical systems and robotics.
