Engineering technology is the study and use of modern technology such as electronics, computer systems, telecommunications and robotics. The study of engineering technology prepares students for careers as engineering technicians.
Training in engineering technology tends to be more practical and specialized in a particular area of modern technology than the broader, more theoretically and mathematically oriented study in engineering programs.
Recipients of the AAS degree in engineering technology are prepared to enter the workforce as Engineering Technicians or to continue their education in a four year Bachelors degree program in engineering technology. Starting salaries generally range from $25,000 to $30,000 for engineering technicians with a Bachelor’s degree.
There are two career paths available to students in this degree program: Computer/Electronics Systems Networking/Telecommunications These fields are identified as “Emerging Occupations” by the Texas State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee and identified as “Targeted Occupations” by Tech Force 2000 for the Gulf Coast Region. A “Targeted Occupation” is one which has a minimum of 1,000 job openings each year through the year 2000, and meets above average hourly wage rate. Graduates of this program possess the technical skills and knowledge to seek immediate employment in industries requiring computer electronics, and/or networking/telecommunications skills. A wide variety of employment opportunities are available in the Houston area.
