Officials said, "The Division of Engineering & Information Technologies offers highly accredited education and training for today’s modern workforce and the careers of the future. More than ever, people are retiring in fields requiring technical know-how. In addition, as distribution centers, automotive manufacturers, IT and technology start-ups, and chemical processors move into the area, the demand for highly skilled workers continues to increase. 

"To meet the demand, the Engineering & Information Technologies Division offers five Associate of Applied Science degrees with twenty-one concentrations in the fields of Information Computer Information Technology, Engineering and Engineering Technology, a Computer Science transfer path, an Engineering transfer program, and a Technical Certificate in Computer Aided Drafting. 

"Participants will discover pathways to high demand, high wage STEM careers through Engineering, Computer Programming, Cyber Security, and Computer Network Administration programs of study. Come to see the College’s state-of-the-art labs, equipment, facilities, and meet some of the very best engineering and computer science technology educators in this part of the country."
