Applied Technology High School

This high school program located on the Paramus Campus of Bergen Community College will provide students a unique educational experience through a blend of academic high school curriculum, college classes, and hands-on technical training. With a curriculum that is centered on “smart machines,” students will learn to apply math, science, and technology to hands-on projects in the fields of automation, electronics, and advanced manufacturing. Through this program, students will learn essential skills needed to pursue a career in a wide variety of areas including engineering technology. This training will be coupled with the dual enrollment coursework needed to allow students to earn advanced standing into several technical associates programs at the college, including an A.A.S. program in General Engineering Technol­ogy. Associates degrees earned at Bergen Com­munity College are transferable to all four-year public colleges and universities in New Jersey.

What is Engineering Technology?

Engineering and Engineering Technology are separate but closely-related fields. While engineering typically focuses on conceptual design, engineering technology focuses on application and implementation. Graduates with a degree in engineering technology will help fill a critical workforce need as they work to install, maintain, and support the increasing number of automated manufacturing systems that are projected to return much of the production that has been outsourced over the past decade back into factories here in the U.S. Graduates from a two- or four-year program in engineering technology qualify as technicians and seek employment in a variety of sectors including manufacturing, construction, and product design.
