Mission and Purpose
The School of Applied Science and Technology provide learners with innovative degree programs that facilitate learning, engagement and discovery in the applied sciences and technology fields. The School’s curriculum meets the educational and career needs of learners in work environments where opportunity is facilitated by technical currency, practical knowledge and applied skills.
The School’s curriculum provides opportunities to achieve personal and career goals through programs in associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in 75 areas of study, allowing the flexibility to integrate skills and knowledge acquired outside academia by granting academic credit for professional licenses/certifications, apprenticeships, professional training and military training.
Students may advance toward their academic goal by transferring credit from other regionally accredited institutions or by earning credit through alternative methods including examination programs, such as TECEP®, CLEP® and DSST®, Portfolio Assessment and academic program reviews.
The School of Applied Science and Technology’s vision is to continually enhance our position as a leader in Engineering Technology and Applied Science education through exemplary quality of graduates of our degree and certificate programs, in all aspects of their academic and professional endeavors, and in their civic and social responsibilities.
