COTC’s Engineering Technology program grows

| July 16, 2014

NEWARK —Central Ohio Technical College currently offers a full schedule of classes for its Engineering Technology program at the Newark Campus. Now, the successful program is growing and several of these same classes are being offered at the Knox, Coshocton and Pataskala campuses. Starting this fall, Engineering 106 (Computer Applications for Engineering Technicians) and Architecture 135 (Technical Drawing) are being offered at all extended campuses. Knox Campus will also have an additional class offering, Architecture 110 (CAD Fundamentals). These courses are being offered in the evening to accommodate students with busy day-time schedules.

“More availability means more opportunities for students to boost their careers by taking these classes,” said Amir Nassirharand, PhD, Engineering Technology Program Director.

High school students who qualify for post-secondary options or dual enrollment at COTC can take classes for free or at a reduced cost, depending on their circumstances. The Engineering Technology program prepares students for a career in the engineering field and enhances their career opportunities. Enrolled students may choose from  Architectural Engineering Major, Civil Engineering Major, Electrical Engineering Major, Mechanical Engineering Major, and Manufacturing Engineering Technology.  The curricula of these programs are designed to give students a strong understanding of the principles for the fields of study and a one-of-a-kind experiential learning opportunity in modern laboratory facilities.

Registration for autumn semester classes is currently underway. Students are strongly encouraged to start registering soon before classes fill. Autumn semester begins on Aug. 27. More information is available at the COTC website, at [email protected] or call (740) 366-9222.
