Associate in Applied Science Degree, Career Program
Energy Process Technology is a field of study that provides a broad based technical education that prepares students for careers in energy production settings and general industrial fields. Employment for graduates includes opportunities in the management, development, operation and maintenance of complex energy and industrial process control systems. The program provides the basis for students to relate physical, geological and chemical mechanisms for natural resource development and potential environmental impacts.
Graduates will have a solid foundation in industrial data acquisition, analysis and communication. With curriculum sequences in chemistry, mathematics, physics and electronics, students will obtain a general preparation for specialized industry training obtained after employment. Students will have a working knowledge of the key components of the current processes for energy production and industrial process control to successfully transition into technical positions within the energy industry, environmental regulatory agencies, or as laboratory or process technicians in energy or non-energy related industries. Graduates will demonstrate an ability to communicate and apply analytical tools required for environmental monitoring, assessment, and reporting for natural resource management and demonstrate a working knowledge of the instrumentation relating to energy environmental management and industrial systems.
Inherent in Corning Community College’s mission is preparing students for a life of service to their professions and their communities in a globally interdependent society. The Energy Process Technology degree provides a sustainable skill set that transverses many employment opportunities. While the degree is not specifically designed for transfer to bachelor degree programs, many of the required courses also satisfy transfer program requirements and the broad base of science, electronics and mathematics courses provide a strong foundation for bachelor program success in engineering, mathematics and science disciplines.
