Associate in Applied Science in Engineering Technologies
Students in the Associate in Applied Science in Engineering Technologies receive in-depth instruction in the areas of safety applications, DC electronics and metrology; AC electronics and photonics; industrial electrical systems and motors; digital systems and microcontrollers; hydraulics and pneumatics; and basic design drafting.
Paid internships are a requirement for the program so students can begin earning even before graduating.
OSU Institute of Technology offers two program options for students interested in the AAS in Engineering Technologies.
With an AAS in Engineering Technologies - Electrical/Electronics Technologies, graduates can work as control system technicians, instrumentation/automation technicians, electrical/electronic maintenance technicians and instrumentation technicians. The demand for graduates with an electrical/electronics specialty will only increase as manufacturing companies continue to look into automation to increase the quality of their products as well as overall profitability.
Students who earn an AAS in Engineering Technologies - Instrumentation Technology are qualified to design, specify, troubleshoot and manage instrumentation and control systems in the fields of chemical processing, food processing, oil and gas production, manufacturing, energy production and other highly technical fields. Graduates also have the option to continue their education and earn a Bachelor of Technology in Instrumentation Engineering Technology.
