Technology Studies (Pathway) Transfer Program A.S.

Program Description

The Technology Studies curriculum offers the courses that are required in the first two years of study in specific engineering technology programs. The Technology Studies degree is part of the statewide College of Technology (COT) initiative that is an umbrella for Connecticut's twelve community colleges and six public and private partner universities. Through COT's articulation agreement, students who get an associate degree in Technology Studies can transfer seamlessly at junior level to specific engineering technology programs at Central Connecticut State University.

Program Outcomes

Upon successful completion of all program requirements, graduates will be able to:

  1. Transfer seamlessly into a Bachelor of Science Degree Program in Engineering Technology with junior level status
  2. Demonstrate the ability to assist in development, design, production, and testing associated with engineering technology
  3. Demonstrate proficiency in technical fundamentals to analyze engineering technology problems
  4. Apply appropriate mathematical and scientific principles to engineering technology applications
  5. Maintain a practical knowledge of state-of-the-art hardware and software in related engineering technology fields
  6. Demonstrate the ability to think through a problem in a logical manner
  7. Apply skills and knowledge to effectively and efficiently plan, organize, implement, measure, and manage technology
