Engineering Technology Programs
Students receive instruction in construction document preparation, materials and methods, environmental and structural systems, building codes and specifications, and computer applications as well as complete a design project.
The Chemical Technology curriculum prepares individuals for work as analytical technicians in chemical laboratories associated with chemical production, environmental concerns, pharmaceuticals, or general analysis.
The Electronic Engineering Technology curriculum prepares individuals to become technicians who design, build, install, test, troubleshoot, repair, and modify developmental and production electronic components, equipment, and systems such as industrial/computer controls, manufacturing systems, communication systems, and power electronic systems.
The Interior Design curriculum is designed to prepare students for a variety of job opportunities in the field of both residential and non-residential interior design. The goals of the designer are to create a functional, unified, harmonious space that enhances the lives of the occupants.
The Machining Technology curriculum is designed to develop skills in the theory and safe use of hand tools, power machinery, computerized equipment and sophisticated precision inspection instruments.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology curriculum prepare graduated for employment as mechanical technicians. Typical assignments would include assisting in the design, development, testing and repair of mechanical equipment.
Our Nuclear Maintenance Technology program is under development in partnership with GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy and Granite International and is designed to prepare Granite employees as nuclear maintenance technicians during outages at power plants with GE nuclear steam supply systems. Students enter this program in either the Fall or Spring semesters and complete five semesters of academic work in a well-rounded selection of courses in math, sciences, and humanities, including courses in reactor physics and boiling water reactor technology. An additional co-op semester provides students with work-based learning during plant outages at sites throughout the US plus specialized training on a full-scale mockup of a boiling water reactor at GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy facilities in San Jose, California. Upon completion, and pending state approval of the program, students are awarded an Associate of Applied Science degree in Nuclear Maintenance Technology.
