CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Environmental Technology

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0793  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

Environmental Technicians may work for environmental/engineering consulting firms, local or state regulatory agencies, manufacturers, recycling and waste management companies and local utility and public service (works) departments.  They perform tasks such as environmental sample collection and monitoring, instrument calibration, report writing and data management.  Environmental Technicians may help clients comply with governmental environmental standards, assist in field investigations, work as a team member on a waste or contamination site.  They use computer skills to work with environmental data as well as the concepts of chemistry, biology, meteorology, geology and hydrology to help professionals determine the movement and effects of environmental contaminants.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor before enrolling in any course.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
