 Description

This program prepares students for ​entry-level employment in the fields of electronics, mechatronics, and manufacturing as well as transfer into baccalaurea​te programs leading to careers in fields in manufacturing, product development, management, and engineering technology across robotics, automotive, medical, and various industrial fields.

The flexibility offered by this program allows for entrance AS and transferability requirements into schools with BS in Engineering Technology programs. Students should choose their electives deliberately with the transfer destination in mind.
Program Goals

Upon completion of this program, students should be able to:

  • Successfully employ test and measurement equipment.
  • Develop a technical drawing in free hand and computer aided format.
  • Locate information resources and successfully retrieve data for employment.
  • Apply algebra to analyze simple electrical circuits.
  • Employ standardized industrial equipment such as PLC and be capable to apply the principles of quality control.

Admissions
Rowan College of South Jersey welcomes students seeking a post-secondary education. Admission to this program is open to high school graduates, GED (General Education Development) recipients or others who can benefit from the instruction offered. High school students may be considered for early admission or the High School Option program. Applications are accepted from residents of other New Jersey counties and other states and countries.​

When you Graduate
AAS programs are designed for students who want to enter a career directly after graduating but those who change their plans find that most, sometimes all, of their RCSJ credits transfer to four-year colleges. RCSJ graduates have transferred to every university in New Jersey and scores of universities throughout America. The latest technology and learning tools support your education for a wide range of employment opportunities.

Disclaimer: 
The content and requirements of the program requirements may be altered at any time at the discretion of the College. The program requirements were checked for accuracy at the time of publishing but should not be considered a contract between the College and the student.​
