The Engineering Sciences & Applied Technology department is the home to a variety of programs in the fields of industrial technology and engineering. A small class size and state-of-the-art hardware, software, and course-ware characterize the typical classroom experience.
Department focused advisers are skilled at assisting students looking to earn an Associate’s degree and/or transfer to a Bachelor’s degree program. They are equally knowledgeable in the requirements for earning either a college or industry certificate that will demonstrate workforce competency for internships and professional employment.
STEM Advising can assist all current and aspiring STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) students with career advising. This includes students who are currently enrolled or considering pursuing a degree in a STEM-related field.
