Systems/Industrial Engineering Technology-A.A.S.
|DESCRIPTION:||The Associate of Applied Science in Systems/Industrial Engineering Technology provides students with knowledge and skills in the areas of analysis and measurement in a variety of industries. Students receive hands-on experience with the equipment used in machine tool operations, testing and analysis and computer-aided design. This major is available at the Trumbull and Tuscarawas campuses. Systems engineering also is available as an individualized program option under mechanical engineering technology at the Ashtabula Campus. Not all courses are available at all campuses, nor are all courses regularly scheduled.
||In 2006, engineers held about 1.5 million jobs.
About 37 percent of engineering jobs were found in manufacturing industries and another 28 percent were in the professional, scientific, and technical services sector, primarily in architectural, engineering, and related services. Many engineers also worked in the construction, telecommunications, and wholesale trade industries.
Federal, State, and local governments employed about 12 percent of engineers in 2006. About half of these were in the Federal Government, mainly in the U.S. Departments of Defense, Transportation, Agriculture, Interior, and Energy, and in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Most engineers in State and local government agencies worked in highway and public works departments. In 2006, about 3 percent of engineers were self-employed, many as consultants.
Engineers are employed in every State, in small and large cities and in rural areas. Some branches of engineering are concentrated in particular industries and geographic areas—for example, petroleum engineering jobs tend to be located in areas with sizable petroleum deposits, such as Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Alaska, and California. Others, such as civil engineering, are widely dispersed, and engineers in these fields often move from place to place to work on different projects.
