engineering and technology to solutions, whereas engineers focus on theoretical thinking.
They work with engineers, designers, physical scientist or planners.
What You'll Do and Where You'll Work
Engineering technicians and technologists are key members of a team who focus on applying engineering and technology to solutions, whereas engineers focus on theoretical thinking. They work with engineers, designers, physical scientist or planners/ You can work as a drafter, designer and engineering technician at such companies as Black & Veatch, BlueScope Construction, Burns & McDonnell, Kansas City Power & Light, Sega Inc. and many more.
Our program provides five areas of interest.
Civil engineering techs help plan, design and oversee construction and maintenance of efficient structures and facilities including skyscrapers, bridges, roads and infrastructure. They work with steel, wood, concrete, earth as well as advanced construction materials.
Architectural engineering techs apply engineering principles and technical skills to develop efficient buildings and related systems, such as lighting and communications systems.
Mechanical and manufacturing
Mechanical engineering techs deal with all technology of the past, present and future. They help modify, develop and test machinery and equipment and are involved with research, test, development or production.
Electronics and computers
Electronics and computer techs help design, build and produce computerized electronic equipment and create the next generation electronic devices. They lay out, build, test and increase efficiency of electronic components of devices and systems.
Construction engineering techs use their broad understanding of building materials
and building methods to plan, design, and orchestrate the construction of roads, bridges,
skyscrapers, homes, damns, stadiums and more.
What You'll Make
The average national median wage is $50,000 per year. This is a field with a high
job growth rate.
