Completing the Certificate of Achievement in Engineering Design gives students knowledge of CAD, CAE, manufacturing equipment, and product development for production purposes. This will help students obtain an internship while going to school or find a career in engineering as a drafter or prototyping specialist

1. ENGINEERING STUDENTS SHALL DEMONSTRATE AN ABILITY TO DESIGN A SYSTEM, COMPONENT, OR PROCESS TO MEET DESIRED NEEDS WITHIN REALISTIC CONSTRAINTS SUCH AS ECONOMIC, ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, POLITICAL, ETHICAL, HEALTH AND SAFETY, MANUFACTURABILITY, AND SUSTAINABILITY
2. ENGRINEERING STUDENTS SHALL DEMONSTRATE AN ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE OF MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE, AND ENGINEERING
An estimated 45 students can complete this degree annually.
Students develop the technical design skills required for many Design-Drafter professional positions. Completing the required courses prepares the students for a Design-Drafting career with Civil-Engineering, Building Design-Construction, and Electro-Mechanical Device firms.
Completing these required courses prepares students for a Design-Drafting career with Civil-Engineering, Building Design-Construction, and Electro-Mechanical Device firms. This certificate is especially beneficial for students applying for internships in manufacturing, construction, or design.
"Based on all available data, there appears to be a significant under supply of Technical Design & Computational Design workers compared to the demand for this cluster of occupations in the Bay region and in the East Bay sub-region (Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.) There is a projected annual gap of about 1,404 students in the Bay region and 362 students in the East Bay Sub-Region.
This report also provides student outcomes data on employment and earnings for programs on TOP 0924.00 - Engineering Technology, General (requires Trigonometry) in the state and region. It is recommended that these data be reviewed to better understand how outcomes for students taking courses on this TOP code compare to potentially similar programs at colleges in the state and region, as well as to outcomes across all CTE programs at Chabot College and in the region. "
This certificate compares to the following SOC codes described below:
Mechanical Engineering Technicians (SOC 17-3027): Apply theory and principles of mechanical engineering to modify, develop, test, or calibrate machinery and equipment under direction of engineering staff or physical scientists.
Engineering Technicians, Except Drafters, All Other (SOC17-3029):All engineering technicians, except drafters, not listed separately.
While completing engineering transfer requirements, many students need income to help pay for school and other living expenses. Also, many students may get overwhelmed with the exorbitant amount of courses that they are required to take. This certificate gives students an option to either obtain an internship while attending school, thus gaining experience and income to continue their education, or allowing students to earn a certificate that will allow them to obtain a full time job for an engineering company. Many of the engineering positions and work responsibilities revolve around these core classes. Students will be familiar with Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), and building prototypes for production purposes.
