The Technical Engineering Option is a general technology program. It is for students who do not want to major in any specific technology but want a broad background. If, after spending one year in this option, a student becomes interested in a specific technology, it is possible for him to transfer to that technology.
This program is also designed to interface with both the Engineering Transfer Program and the Pre-Engineering Option (Level 2) of the General Studies Program. A student, after spending one year in either of these programs, may transfer to the Technical Engineering option with no loss of credit.
A student who completes the entire Technical Engineering option is awarded the Associate in Science Degree in Engineering and Science Transfer.
