CURRICULAR GUIDE

General Technology
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0213  (Effective Fall 2002 - Summer 2007)

This curriculum is designed to provide an individual with a multi-discipline
technical background.  The technical courses and supporting courses that
comprise this degree provide the flexibility to match the student's interest
with the skills necessary for job entry.  For example, this curriculum is
often pursued by apprentices who complete most of the requirements for this
degree through their related training requirements and who also wish to earn
an associate degree.  Students interested in pursuing careers in a specific
technical area should see a faculty advisor in their career choice.

Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  See the General Education Core Requirements section for
information on how to fulfill these requirements.
