Engineering Technology

If you're interested in a "hands-on" career, like to solve problems and engage in traditional and new technologies like hydraulics and 3D printing, one of our many options in the area of engineering technology may be a good fit.

Hands-on, critical thinker, problem solver, interested in how things work and how you can make them better . . . If this sounds like you, Engineering Technology may be what you're looking for. The program places strong emphasis on applications, problem solving, critical thinking, and communication skills and those who finish will demonstrate knowledge of CADD, electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, blueprint reading, and mechanics.

A degree in Engineering Technology from Harford Community College prepares you for immediate transition into an entry-level position in the engineering technology field.

Harford's small, student-centered, and flexible learning class options are the ideal learning environment for your engineering studies.



Engineering Technology programs at Harford prepare you to enter the workforce as a technician working alongside engineers in the manufacturing sector. Upon graduation, students will be able to use problem solving, critical thinking, and communication skills to organize, and carry out engineering technology projects.

Some students also choose to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor's degree.
