Industrial Ceramics Engineering Technology

Program


Associate of Applied Science in Industrial Ceramics Engineering Technology

The Industrial Ceramics Engineering Technology program is offered exclusively at the Hocking College Logan Campus.

The Industrial Ceramics Engineering Technology Program is the only engineering technology program in the United States that exclusively trains technicians for the ceramic industry. Students train in well-equipped technical and production laboratories to prepare them for the diverse ceramic industry and its wide range of products:

  • Construction materials - brick, tile, cements, windows and fiberglass;
  • Consumer goods - pottery and china, bathroom fixtures, lamp and glassware coatings, spark plugs
  • Industrial products - furnace linings, electrical insulators, grinding and cutting tools, chemical reaction media, nuclear applications;
  • Electronic components - sensors, capacitors, resistors, magnets; and,
  • Advanced applications - aerospace and automotive materials, tool coatings, armor, biomedical implants, fiber optics, superconductors, fuel cells.
In addition to practical experience gained in the many hands-on laboratory courses, you will complete a practicum working ten days for an industrial company. A summer cooperative work experience in industry is available.
