Technology, A.A.S.

Requirements

The Associate in Applied Science in Technology has been designed for individuals working in a technical area who have considerable work experience and/or have obtained specialized certifications, licenses, apprenticeships, etc. Many of these students will be looking for a degree to allow them better upward mobility in their professions or education to help them become entrepreneurs. Students initially take a class to develop a portfolio that presents licenses and work-related certifications as well as provides a rationale for receiving technical, experiential credit. Core courses provide fundamental knowledge of contemporary technologies, and elective courses allow students to enhance their technical skills in one or more technical areas. A supervisory course is also required so students can learn to manage workers in technology-driven organizations.
