Technology Management, BAS

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Technology Management provides career advancement opportunities for individuals employed (or seeking employment) in a wide variety of plant and corporate settings. Like all BAS programs, the Technology Management major builds upon the technical education acquired through an associate degree in a career field. For the Technology Management major, the associate degree or career courses should be in aviation, computer networking, or business-related field. We offer the following concentrations in the Technology Management Major: Aviation Administration, Computer Networking, and Project Supervision.

Program Requirements

  1. Student must have minimum overall GPA (as defined by Banner) of 2.0 at time of application
  2. The student must satisfy one of the three career course requirements prior to being admitted to BAS program:
    1. Must have an AAS or AAT (Career Associate Degree) from a regionally accredited college or university with 38 transferrable technical or career credit hours

      OR
    2. Must have at least 38 semester credit hours of professional/technical courses from a regionally accredited college or university with a grade of C or higher and 21 of these 38 hours must be in one professional/technical area. If the student has 30-37 professional/technical courses, he/she will need to take additional courses to satisfy the 38 hour requirement; the student’s advisor will recommend appropriate courses.

      OR
    3. Must have at least 12 semester credit hours of military courses from the U.S. Military. If the student has less than the 38 transferrable technical/career/military courses, he/she will need to take additional courses to satisfy the 38 hour requirement; these courses  can be satisfied from a combination of additional technical or career courses, military credit and/or lower division academic credit. The student’s advisor will recommend appropriate courses. Please note that students cannot use lower division academic courses to satisfy both the block credit (38 hours) and core curriculum (Areas A-F) requirements. Therefore, students may need to take additional courses to satisfy their core curriculum requirements.
