Write a short narrative including each of the following:

      1.     Catalog Description. A Description of the program as it will appear in the catalog.
             This degree and certificate option is designed for students pursuing employment or upgrade in
             employment in Manual and CAD drafting applications in Architectural or Structural Engineering
             related offices. Engineering Design Technology is studied in lecture and drafting practice classes.
             Mathematics, science, and engineering fundamentals, which are all related to the content of this
             program, are studied in the Engineering Design Technology program or through recommended
             elective courses. General Education courses complete the recommended classes for the
             Engineering Design Technology curriculum. Program Costs: Normal student expenses for
             textbooks, personal equipment, and supplies may be required. These expenses may vary each
             semester. If these expenses create a financial burden, students should consult the Financial Aid
             Office for possible assistance. Recommended High School Preparation: Completion of English
             and general mathematics. It is desirable, but not required, that a student complete courses in
             drafting, industrial arts shop courses, one year of algebra, plane geometry, general science, and
             introduction to computers. The program is open to all students. An orientation interview with a
             member of the Engineering Design Technology staff is encouraged to help students become
             acquainted with the program requirements. For information call (916) 558-2232 or 558-2491.
             Career Opportunities: This program is designed for students pursuing entry level employment in
             architectural, electrical and mechanical engineering, and commercial construction drafting fields.
             Depending on their technical field of interest and capabilities, students who complete the program
             may find employment in any of the following types of jobs: Engineering Aide I, Engineering Aide

    Before completing question #4 below, consider addressing the following questions:

         Net Job Market
              Given the number of enrollments projected for the program and necessary to support the
                 program, are there enough openings locally to permit placement of the expected number
                 of graduates, taking account of the number of graduates available from similar programs
                 within the same geographic region?
              Has the job market been: declining slowly? steady? growing slowly? growing rapidly?
                 newly emerging?

         Earning Potential
              What is the average initial salary?
              What is the average percentage of salary increase in 2 years? 5 years?

         Program Credibility/Career Potential
              Is there sufficient evidence that employers would preferentially hire or promote graduates
                 with this education, other things being equal?
              How likely is it that employees with only the education provided by this program, and
                 lacking experience, will be hired at all? Or that experienced employees with only this
                 education would be promoted?
              If advanced degrees are typically needed for career advancement, will the courses
                 required for this program transfer towards completion of the requirements for those
              Will this preparation permit students to stay current in their field? Does the program
                 teach basic principles and theory, as well as applications? Is it current? Is it of sufficient
                 rigor to assure the capacity to continue to follow the literature and learn new techniques?
                 Is it of sufficient generality to allow for later shifts in career?
              Does this preparation provide a significant secondary expertise to primary careers? Is it
                 designed primarily or in part to meet the needs of those already employed for upward
                 mobility, entrepreneurship, or other career upgrade?
              Does it prepare students to work in an ethnically diverse workforce and an ethnically
                 diverse, global market?

    4.   Justification of sufficient Labor Market Need. One or both of the following should be included.

NFNRC version (CCC-510) 12/3/07, 2008-2009
              a.   Labor Market Information. Include projections from LMI for the most applicable OES
                   codes and geographical regions to be served by the program. If these projections do not
                   appear to suggest adequate job openings to provide employment for all program
                   completers, given existing training sources, then the application must explain what other
                   factors may make the LMI figures misleading. If LMI figures are unavailable for the
                   occupation targeted by the program, please explain.
                   California Median wage – (2008) $24.92 Hourly, $51,800 Annual Employment (2006)
                   3,900; Projected growth (2006-2016) 5.0%; Projected need (2006-2016) 200; Job
                   openings (2006-2016) 130 Annual
              b.   Job Market Analysis. Include information demonstrating the relation of the proposed
                   program to a job market analysis. The job market analysis should present evidence that
                   there is a viable job market that will preferentially hire those graduating with the
                   proposed degree or certificate.
                   Sacramento -Arden Arcade-Roseville Metropolitan Statistical Area Median wage –
                   (2006) $25.79 Hourly, $53,653 Annual Employment (2006) 160; Projected growth
                   (2006-2016) 12.5%; Projected need (2006-2016) 20; Job openings (2006-2016) 7 Annual
