Engineering Technology Certificate
Division: Technology and Engineering
PROGRAM CODE: 2C41410
The Engineering Technology Certificate program is the study of technologies, sciences and management practices that provides a background in materials, advanced manufacturing processing (metals and plastics), automation (robotics and programmable controllers), mechanical design and development process, CAD/CAM, quality control/metrology, process planning, "lean" principles, and project management. The student is required to complete a total of 34-36 units. At least one half of the units toward the certificate must be completed at Fullerton College. A minimum grade of C or better is required for each course taken.
