In order to earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Industrial Technology students must complete sixty (60) credits. These credits must be taken from three categories: core curriculum, general education electives, and technical electives.
Students who obtain an Associate degree or an Associate of Applied Science degree will be required to complete a service-learning experience. The final grade in the course must qualify for academic credit in order to receive the service-learning endorsement. Please contact an Academic Advisor for courses that offer a service-learning experience, or search in the class schedules.
Industrial Trades curricula are offered in a non-traditional, modular format. Module descriptions are not listed in the catalog.
