About the Program

Mechanical engineering technicians are the semi-professional members of the engineer-scientist-technician team engaged in the design of machines, mechanisms, and other mechanical systems. Assignments may include drafting, designing, product and materials testing, and supervision. In addition to a broad based background in mechanical design, this program offers training on an industrial CAD system. CLC’s program offers an Associate in Applied Science degree and several certificate options to prepare students for careers working with engineers and scientists as part of a design team.
