The Engineering Fundamentals Certificate of Achievement combines a solid grounding in the basic principles that underly all engineering disciplines with a choice of electives that provide pathways to work experience or further study leading to the Engineering Certificate of Achievement or Associate in Science Degree.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to:
- Use the scientific method to investigate phenomena in the natural world and use concepts, experiments, and/or theory to explain them.
- Use the engineering method to solve technical problems or create products or processes.
- Analyze and evaluate complex issues or problems, draw reasoned conclusions and/or generate solutions, and effectively communicate their results.
