Applied Engineering Technology



The 60 credit Applied Engineering Technology (AET) associate of applied science degree includes basic engineering principles, computer aided design, project management, industrial processes, production and operations management, and quality control. In PTCC’s AET program, the student will be introduced to, and become efficient with computer aided design (CAD) software. Students will focus on building a foundation of knowledge in Statics, Kinetics, Machine Design, Manufacturing Processes, Automation and Metrology. They will be introduced to complimentary manufacturing functions such as basic machine shop, welding, and automation to provide them with the basic language and skills of these processes needed to make their designs a reality. Students will be able to develop both technical skills and soft skills by working on projects individually and within groups. These projects will simulate projects in industry and cover skills such as project scopes, timelines, system designs, project documentation, and manufacturability of designs.



Students completing this AAS will be able to:

  • analyze and apply specific knowledge and technology in the areas of part, machine and system design along with their manufacturability;
  • design, document, troubleshoot parts, machines and systems, with a goal of understanding the manufacturability of these parts, machines and systems;
  • select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, and technology to problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
  • demonstrate professional ethics: honesty, respect, teamwork, reliability and initiative when dealing with peers and supervisors; and
  • apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments.
