|Students in this program will demonstrate entry-level skills for employment in the drafting and construction industry as a manual or computer-aided drafter in architecutral and building design offices, as well as in developer and building contractor offices, engery consultants, and other related sub-trades where plan reading and preparation is required. Students will learn skills that would be useful for employment in building and planning departments as plan checkers, code enforcement officers and more! This program offers the option to earn a Certificate (or a Certificate with an Engineering option) as well as an Associate of Science Degree .

ENGINEERING/ ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
||San Joaquin Delta College's Engineering Department Programs help prepare students for entry into the technical employment field as Engineers or Engineering Technologists. All Bachelor of Science degree intendees must transfer to a four year educational institution to complete their program. Persons completing an Associate in Science degree in Engineering Technology will be ready for employment as Engineering Technicians and/or Drafters.
The Engineering Technology program serves the two-fold purpose of training students for employment as Science degree in Engineering Technicians after receiving the A.S. degree, and of offering lower division technical courses for transfer to state colleges which offer a four year degree in Engineering Technology. A student who plans to transfer to a four year college may take the same basic technical courses (with noted exceptions) but should consult the catalog of the school of his/her choice in order to create the best possible transfer program. A few prospective employment opportunities for the graduate with a two year Associate in Science in Engineering Technology degree are shown below for majors in each of the specified options.
The statewide Engineering Liaison Committee encourages Engineering transfer students to complete the prescribed Engineering Core and obtain certification of that at the community college to assure transferability as Junior to any four year college and/or university in the state.
