|The General Engineering Technology degree program is designed to support the workforce education needs of companies seeking to train their existing manufacturing line operators as engineer technicians.|
The program is administered by Vermont Technical College's Technology Extension Division (TED).
TED programs offer applications-oriented science and technology curricula delivered in non-traditional modes to accommodate student and industry needs. The goal is to offer students a flexible, interdisciplinary path to the acquisition of basic engineering concepts and specific job-related skills needed to excel in their current positions and prepare for career growth.
The industry-specific technical courses are developed by a curriculum development team comprised of Vermont Tech faculty and representatives from the sponsoring organizations. The program allows incumbent workers in technical industries to advance to engineer technician positions.
Industries served by the General Engineering Technology program include aeronautic electronics; semiconductor processing and electronics; manufacturing; and electromechanical engineering.
