The Engineering Technology program at Las Positas College is a two-year degree pathway resulting in an Associate of Science (A.S.) in Engineering Technology. This cohort-based learning community is designed as a strong local employment pathway for military veterans and others who want a hands-on engineering career with a focus on mechanical technology in an applied setting. Students receive foundational training in engineering, mathematics, physics, and welding, and develop skills in manufacturing and fabrication, problem-solving, and critical thinking. An accelerated mathematics sequence advances students from intermediate algebra to calculus-readiness in one year. The cohort-based learning model also delivers integrated career-readiness and support services.
