III. ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE IN ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (AS)

Programme Description

UCCI’s Associate of Science in Engineering Technology provides students with the practical application of science and engineering to solve a wide range of existing technical problems. The programme is aimed at producing Engineering technicians with excellent technical and interpersonal skills. Graduates can lead or become team members who focus on applying engineering and technology to solutions. All students are exposed to the three core areas of study electrical, mechanical, and civil engineering technology. A key component of the programme is the internship that is supported by local businesses. Our graduates gain exposure to theory and on the job experience. This enables them to function effectively in career paths ranging from construction management, facility maintenance, infrastructure work, electrical services, and machine maintenance.

Programme Objectives

At the end of the programme, students should be able to:

  1. Select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly defined engineering technology activities.

  2. Apply an understanding of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems.

  3. Conduct standard tests and measurements on engineering systems and apply experimental results to process improvement.

  4. Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments.

  5. Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

Program Length 

This programme is two years for full-time students.
