Get the facts about Richland Community College engineering technician, registering in a technical training program, and taking practice exams for free online. Whether you are considering an associates degree in electronics engineering, or a bachelor of science in EECS, mechanical or civil engineering, you will find many doors opening after graduation. If you complete the engineering technician program, for example, there are a variety of concentrations that may appeal to you such as heating science, ventilation systems, or refrigeration methods. Further, due to advances in building technology, there is a growing shortage of HVAC technician graduates, and of skilled engineering technicians in general. Please use the form above to request admissions info for Richland Community College.

In modern buildings the design, installation, and control systems of various functions are integrated into one or more HVAC systems. Heaters exist for various types of fuel, including solid fuels, liquids, and gases. Another type of heat source is electricity, used in baseboard heaters. Alternatively, warm air may be distributed through duct work systems using metal or fiberglass ducts. Many systems use the same ducts to distribute air cooled by an evaporator coil for air conditioning. Because an air conditioner moves heat between the indoor coil and the outdoor coil, both must be kept clean. This means that you must regularly clean the condenser coil, in addition to replacing the air filter at the evaporator coil.

Engineering technician may receive training from technical schools or community colleges that offer technical training in heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration. These programs generally last from 6 months to 2 years, and lead to a certificate or an associate’s degree. The median annual wage for heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration engineering technicians was $45,110 as of May 2015. Further, employment of engineering technician graduates is projected to grow 14 percent over the next decade, much faster than average.

Civil Engineering Programs

Civil engineers design and oversee construction projects and infrastructure systems in both the public and private sectors. Civil engineering programs typically take three to five years, and courses include physics, mathematics, project management, design and specific topics in civil engineering. Materials science is closely related to civil engineering. It studies the fundamental characteristics of materials, and deals with mixtures such as asphalt concrete, strong metals like aluminum and steel, and novel polymers including carbon fiber. Civil engineering technicians assist civil engineers in the development of industrial and municipal infrastructure projects. The annual wage of civil engineers with a bachelors was roughly $82,220 in 2015, while civil engineering technicians with an associates degree ranged closer to $50,000 per year.

The subdiscipline of structural engineering governs construction of buildings, bridges, tunnels, and off-shore structures. This involves identifying the loads which act upon a structure, and the forces and stresses which arise within that structure due to external stresses. How can the structure successfully support and resist those loads? The structural engineer takes into account both material considerations such as strength, stiffness, and stability of the structure, as well as other design considerations including cost, safety and sustainability. Due to the nature of some loading conditions, wind engineering and earthquake engineering have developed as specialties within structural engineering.

Engineering Job Listings

The Fundamentals of Engineering exam should be taken immediately after earning a bachelors degree from an ABET-accredited program. Engineers who pass this exam are called engineers in training (EIT), or engineer interns. After meeting work experience requirements, engineer interns can attempt a second certifying exam, called the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam. Thereafter, acquisition of a professional engineering license enables management of junior engineers, the ability to sign off on engineering projects, and provide services directly to the public. Wages vary by employer and location. Aside from salary, most engineering jobs include excellent benefits, as well as retirement plans.
