Applied Technology, Bachelor of Science (BS)
This program is designed for students who have graduated with an associate degree in applied arts and sciences (AAAS), associate degree in applied science (AAS), associate degree in technical arts (ATA) in computer technology, electronics, technology, mechanical engineering technology, civil engineering technology, drafting/design technology and similarly named programs at community colleges. This degree allows these students to continue their education by taking liberal arts courses, additional advanced technology courses and supporting courses to complete a Bachelor of Science Degree.
- Entrance into this program requires an AAS, AAAS, ATA or similar degree in an approved area from an accredited two-year college. Applicants must have a GPA ≥2.5 for the Technology coursework in the AAS, AAAS or ATA degree. Graduation requires maintaining an overall GPA ≥2.5 for this option.
- This program requires an average of 15–16 credits per quarter to complete in 2 years. The 81 credits are based upon the following assumption: students will have satisfied university competencies. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to complete up to six more credits of classes. (See university competencies in this catalog.)
- In order to graduate, students majoring in the department must earn a GPA ≥2.5 in departmental coursework.
- Students getting a minor in the department must also earn a GPA ≥2.5 in departmental coursework.
