All phases of manufacturing or construction require the conversion of new ideas and design concepts into the basic line language of graphics. Therefore, there are many areas (civil, mechanical, electrical, architectural and industrial) in which the skills of the CAD technicians play major roles in the design and development of new products or construction. Students prepare for actual work situations through practical training in a new state-of-the-art computer designed CAD laboratory using AutoCAD, and other advanced CAD software.

Specific skills mastered by Engineering Graphics Technology majors include the production of mechanical, architectural, electrical and civil drawings both with traditional drafting machines and state-of-the-art computer aided drafting (CAD) systems, and the selection and design of architectural and mechanical systems. The senior year includes advanced CAD techniques using solid modeling, wire frame and assembly techniques. Internship opportunities may also be available with local industries for senior EGT students.

Purpose Statement – Engineering Graphics Technology program prepares students for the highly skilled and technological workplace in engineering.

EGT Program Educational Outcomes:

To produce graduates who, during the first few years of professional practice, will:

  1. Demonstrate a broad knowledge of engineering graphics technology practices and proficiencies to support the drafting, design, installation, and manufacturing of mechanical components, and related systems as required by employers,

  2. Apply basic mathematical and scientific principles for technical problem solving in areas which may include engineering materials, applied mechanics, and manufacturing methods,

  3. Utilize computers and software including computer aided drafting/design in a technical environment,

  4. Demonstrate competence in written and oral communication,

  5. Work effectively as an individual and as a member of a multidisciplinary team,

  6. Show awareness of social concerns and professional responsibilities in the workplace, and

  7. Continue their professional training and adapt to changes in the workplace through additional formal or informal education.

Program Student Learning Outcomes:

  1. Utilize drafting practices and principles necessary to design and develop technical drawings.

  2. Demonstrate creativity and critical thinking in the design and the development of technical drawings and applications.

  3. Demonstrate a working knowledge base to effectively use CAD related software to produce technical drawings.

  4. Apply the basic principles of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology to solve technical problems.

  5. Conduct test and then understand and apply results.

Advisement Information

  • Recent high school graduates should be asked if they have participated in Project Lead the Way.  If so, high school transcripts should be forwarded to Sandy Warner for possible exemption credit.

  • EGR 101 is designed for students who are enrolled in MAT 152 or MAT 101 and not yet able to begin engineering couresework requiring higher math. It is a one credit hour (one contact hour) course for all engineering majors.

  • Students who need MAT, ENG or RDG 032 courses as prerequisites should not enroll in EET, EGR, or EGT courses.

  • To enroll in EGR 130, students must have completed MAT 152 or MAT 101 or have placement scores indicating readiness for MAT 102. Completion of MAT 102 is preferred, but student may take MAT 102 along with EGR 130.

  • Students will need to purchase a drafting kit (approx. $100). 

  • Students will need to purchase a flash drive (1GB minimum).

  • When students enter this program with Project Lead the Way course credit in high school, they may receive the following credit:
