Introduction to Technical Studies
The Technical Studies program is designed to support the diverse needs of skilled workers in our community to obtain an associate degree by offering credit for recognized technical experience, certifications and training. With consultation from a faculty advisor from diverse technical backgrounds, the program allows students to build on the success of their individual area of technical expertise by choosing technical electives to complement their Technical Specialty area. The Technical Studies degree is intended to be a program of study in an area other than the current degree programs of the college.
Students coming from recognized apprenticeship programs or students with certifications in a technical field (in an area that we do not offer an Associate Degree) may receive credits toward an associate’s degree in Technical Studies for industry training and/or certifications. Documented certification exams and/or military experience may also be reviewed for credit
