1 AGBell – METC by Andrew G. Bell (260) Lecture 1

2 AGBell – METC Introduction to Engineering Technology Ivy Tech–Northeast Introducing 5 New Academic Programs in August, Posted on July 6, 2011 NORTHEAST – When classes begin Monday, August 22, 2011, Ivy Tech Community College–Northeast will launch five new academic programs available to students attending the college in the immediate nine-county northeast Indiana area. The programs - Engineering Technology, HVAC, Health Information Technology, Information Systems Security, and Pre-Engineering were identified, proposed, and approved as degree tracks that our immediate area had an additional need for educated and trained individuals to help support the specific industries and fields of study. Engineering Technology The Associate of Science in Engineering Technology will provide students with technical skills and knowledge necessary for employment in engineering and technology industries. The program will educate skilled technicians who will work with engineers and other technicians to design, implement, and support engineering processes. Activities such as collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data and troubleshooting complex integrated systems will be foundational concepts in all coursework. Students will develop basic and advanced skills appropriate to the application of science, technology, engineering, and math that will enable graduates to enter the workforce and/or transfer to a four-year engineering technology program. Graduates can continue their education at selected university sites across Indiana, applying their credits towards a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Technology. This program is designed to meet the Criteria for Accrediting Engineering Technology Programs as set forth by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. Graduates of the Engineering Technology associate degree will use the principles and theories of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems in research and development, manufacturing, sales, construction, inspection, and maintenance. Their work is more narrowly focused and application-oriented than that of scientists and engineers. Many engineering technicians assist engineers and scientists, especially in research and development. Others work in quality control, inspecting products and processes, conducting tests, or collecting data. In manufacturing, they may assist in product design, process design, development, or production. According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development Web site Hoosiers by the Numbers, EGR 2 has the largest manufacturing base in the state with 26.9 percent of the total employment attributed to Manufacturing. Likewise, EGR 4 is a well developed manufacturing region. Eight of the top 10 major employers in this region are manufacturing in nature. This region has also hosted a dramatic increase in alternative energy related employment potential in the areas of wind turbine construction and maintenance, biofuel production, battery technology, and smartgrid technologies. The EGR regions 8, 9, and 11 find similar analysis points with compensation packages that average over $60,000/year in manufacturing which is similar across the State. Projections for this field indicate 72 available jobs in northeast Indiana annually between now and 2015

18 AGBell – METC Introduction to Engineering Technology 1.2 The Industrial Team

19 AGBell – METC Introduction to Engineering Technology 1.2 The Industrial Team

20 AGBell – METC Introduction to Engineering Technology 1.2 The Industrial Team The Role of the Technician and Technologist What is a Technician? A Technician typically has a two year degree. Works with the engineer. Must be a good communicator, implementer and calibrator. Creates the drawings. Team Player

21 AGBell – METC Introduction to Engineering Technology 1.2 The Industrial Team The Role of the Technician and Technologist What is a Technologist? A Technologist typically has a four year degree. Works with the engineer and technologist. Must be a good communicator, implementer and calibrator. Supervises construction. Often fills the role as Manufacturing Engineers. Team Player

22 AGBell – METC Introduction to Engineering Technology 1.2 The Industrial Team Scientist – is engaged principally in research and development Engineer – provides system design and technical management. Technologist – provides the practical hands-on manufacturing expertise. Technician – provides the practical hands-on manufacturing expertise. Skilled worker – operates and repairs specialized machinery. Teamwork in Manufacturing
