A Focus on Teaching

For Dr. Adele Wright, teaching undergrads brought the most intellectual challenge – and personal fulfillment.

Blue collar goes high-tech at Columbus State's Engineering Technologies Department. Our faculty give students a hands-on learning experience that prepares them for the high-tech manufacturing and technical jobs of the future.

Our students take part in a stunning array of projects, from developing a solar car to a cutting-edge device to track packages. And when they get out, they're well-prepared to find exciting careers.

All five programs in Engineering Technologies are two-year degrees. Graduates can then transfer to a four-year college, or go straight into the work force.

The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Department teaches students how to work in manufacturing environments that use automated systems.

Our Mechanical Engineering Technology program trains students for entry-level supporting roles in the mechanical engineering and manufacturing engineering fields.

In this competitive world, businesses need to stick to the highest standards of quality. Our graduates can help.

IT Support Technicians are in high demand to keep today's computers working. Train for job-ready credentials like CompTIA A+ and CISCO CCNA.

Engineering Technologies offers four focused certificates that lead to employment opportunities in technology areas. The certificate coursework and preparation means that the student can be gainfully employed earlier, and, in many instances, with companies that offer tuition reimbursement. These certificates can be combined and count toward an associate degree.
