Pre-Engineering Technology

Design from Experience

The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Pre-Engineering Technology will provide a student with the first two years of a four-year program in Engineering Technology. This degree will allow the student to begin a bachelor’s degree in a variety of technical fields by completing the first two years of the Pre-Engineering Technology program at CMN and then finishing a bachelor’s degree either at CMN or at another four-year college or university.

  • Students who earn this diploma from the College of Menominee Nation have the ability to support a career path in an entry level technology team role, such as scientist, engineer, technologist, technician, or skilled trades.
  • Completion of this program will endow the graduate with the ability to:
    • Solve engineering problems by applying knowledge, modern instrumentation and techniques, and technical skills;
    • Apply appropriate mathematical, scientific, engineering, and technological practicum and methodology to problems;
    • Conduct, analyze, and interpret standard tests, measurements, and experimental results;
    • Apply appropriate technical literature to written, oral, and graphical communication; and
    • Apply knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in local, regional, national, and global contexts.
