Men and women working as engineering technicians complete highly technical tasks that require engineering skills and knowledge. Interdisciplinary fields of engineering are rapidly developing to address the design, operation and maintenance of products that require a working knowledge of both mechanical and electronic components.

Mechatronic technicians are required to work on and with equipment integrating electronics, mechanics, pneumatics, hydraulics and computer controls. The engineering technology program is part of the Lone Star Energy & Manufacturing Institute, which teaches a combination of skills that prepare students to perform many different jobs in industries including petroleum-field services and automated manufacturing.
