Preparation for this career begins in high school. Although
entrance requirements to associate's degree programs vary somewhat
from school to school, mathematics and physical science form the
backbone of a good college preparatory curriculum. Classes should
include algebra, geometry, science, trigonometry, calculus,
chemistry, mechanical drawing, shop, and physics. Because computers
have become essential for engineering technicians, especially for
design and data management, computer courses are also important.
Many engineering technician careers require skill in computer-aided
design (CAD), so be sure take CAD classes if they are offered.
