Associate of Applied Science (AAS)

C Career & technical education programs for job training = Career & technical education programs for job training, guided by Advisory Committees


This program prepares students to work as technicians in the field of mechanical-electrical engineering. Graduates will be able to specify maintenance processes, solve problems in fabrication, design mechanical devices for manufacturing, and troubleshoot mechanical processes. Students find jobs as Engineering assistants, planners, designers, and CAD operators.

Program Requirements and Special Conditions

Students must meet JTCC admission requirements. Students may need to complete placement tests in English and mathematics. Visit for all course placement options.If students have deficiencies in English and/or mathematics, JTCC offers developmental and prerequisite courses to prepare students for the curriculum. New students should visit the Advising Center and returning students their faculty advisor for more information.
