General Engineering Technology, A.A.S

Engineering Tech Graduate Arrianna Boyden

“Three Rivers professors and staff inspired me to pursue my dreams and taught me to never give up. My time at the College also gave me the ability to experience and understand what a wide variety of different career paths were possible for me.” Arrianna Boyden, General Engineering Technology, A.A.S. ’17

The General Engineering Technology (GET) program was developed to meet the industry’s need for generalists as opposed to technicians educated in a specific discipline.  This program gives you the opportunity to design an engineering technology curriculum to meet your own individual needs.  GET students are currently employed by Electric Boat, Pratt and Whitney, Connecticut Municipal Electrical Energy Coop, the US Navy, and other southeastern Connecticut industries. Students have also successfully transferred to four-year institutions in Engineering Technology such as Central Connecticut State University School of Technology.
