Facilities Engineering Technology, Associate in Applied Science

Curriculum CE.FET.AAS (C280A)

The Facilities Engineering Technology Degree is designed for students who are enrolled through the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE), Local 399 Education Training Fund to continue with their education and complete the course work needed for an associate's degree. Students will have the opportunity to acquire the skills needed for employment in jobs requiring multiple maintenance competencies, including electricity, plumbing, and boilers. These competencies will allow the students in this associate's degree program to obtain highly skilled maintenance positions in a variety of industries, office buildings, universities, hospitals, school districts, municipalities, stadia, and commercial/industrial facilities.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES:

At the successful completion of the Associate in Applied Science Degree in Facilities Engineering Technology program, the graduate will be able to:

  • solve fundamental facility engineering problems;
  • design improvement plans using engineering system performance data;
  • safely operate facility environmental systems and equipment;
  • demonstrate effective communication using written, oral, and graphic formats; and
  • evaluate plans for maintenance of stationary equipment and physical structures.

Graduates of the program may seek employment as a stationary operating engineer, a chief engineer, a facilities manager, maintenance foreman, or as a building maintenance supervisor.
