Technology Systems

Students completing the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in General Technology can now directly move their credits into the Technology Systems Bachelor of Science (BS) pathway including their 900 hour certificate from a Utah System of Technical Colleges (USTC).

Students will study a variety of subjects based on the emphasis area they choose. Business, marketing, manufacturing, CAD, robotics, controls, material science, electronics, color theory, textiles, digital design, computer science, cyber security, computer networking, and computer automation are just a few areas that students can discover through their coursework.

An intention of this program is to allow those in the workforce an opportunity to advance in their career and to further their education by offering degrees that work well with their demanding schedules. Students without a USTC certificate or the AAS in General Technology may also look toward this program to potentially utilize technical credits they have taken at Utah State University or other institutions. Course substitutions are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Students without a USTC certificate or the AAS in General Technology may also look toward this program to potentially utilize credits they have taken at Utah State University or other institutions. This is at the advisor’s discretion. Students in Business, Engineering, and Outdoor Product are switching to Technology Systems to finish a program sooner or if they are having difficulty completing their current degree.


Emphases:

Students must choose an emphasis.

  • Information and Computer Technology: Students can gain knowledge in hardware, automation, and administration areas by using technology programs with in-depth & hands-on courses.
  • Robotics, Automation, and Controls: Students can gain knowledge in HMI, PLC, networking, and robotics which is used in numerous industries with hands-on learning.
  • Product Development: Students can gain knowledge in hard and soft-goods areas developing products, growing their own business, or working within industry.
  • Technical Management: Students can gain knowledge in business, economics, management, financing, and ethics to help build their own business or move into management positions.

Admissions Requirements
