Program Changes and Registration

Registration for Fall classes has already begun.Be sure to meet with an advisor in the Computer, Electrical, or Electronics Engineering Technology department. You can see them all under the heading “Full-time Instructors and Advisors” on the Faculty and Staff Page.

We are offering both technical courses we recommend for your first semester over summer for the first time! ELC 131 Circuits 1 and ELN 133 Digital Logic are both scheduled over summer so new entrants to the programs can get a head start on their technical courses. Check them out now on Schedule Builder!

We will be offering a new course for the 2019-2020 catalog year Electronics ET and Computer ET programs called EGR 110 Intro to Engineering Technology. This course is needed if you transfer to UNCC before getting your AAS degree. It will be similar to our famous EGR 150 Intro to Engineering course in the Associates of Engineering (AE) degree program and promises to be a lot of fun. It is an overview of Engineering Technology disciplines as well as introducing study skills, metacognition, and engineering ethics concepts. This is only a requirement of the 2019-202 catalog year Computer and Electronics ET programs (see below for more details on this).

Each of our degree programs have recently undergone heavy changes. Unless you are a new student, nothing will change with your current curriculum plan. Don’t Worry! These changes only affect those who are joining the programs in Fall 2019 and beyond, or those students who update their catalog years. The total number of required credit hours for each of the programs has dropped. It may benefit you to update your catalog year and graduate sooner!  Meet with an advisor to see if this is a possibility. While all three programs are designed for workforce development. For a quick review of what has changed:
