Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The General Technology program provides company-specific graduates for the private sector, expanded opportunities for military personnel and broader employment opportunities for other students. This degree enables students or industries to design individualized programs of study to fulfill unique career goals that cannot be met through the completion of single technical certificate or AAS degree program. Students may use transfer credit or other non-traditional credit such as military training to meet the major and minor requirements. With the approval of an advisor, students choose courses from two or more different technical and academic disciplines and develop a coherent technical program having both a major technical focus and support courses directly related to the career objective.
