Applied Engineering, B.A.S.

Turn your technical degree into a bachelor’s degree.

This Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) program is designed specifically for individuals who typically possess a two-year technical degree and are interested in advancing their professional career. The program is often a “2+2” degree that permits students to apply their 2 year technical degree credits toward a baccalaureate degree.

Coupled with a two-year technical degree providing a focused foundation, students will complete junior- and senior-level courses covering a broad range of applied engineering concepts and applications. This breadth will provide maximum flexibility for graduates to pursue diverse employment opportunities. Completion of the degree is also available through a web-based distance delivery format. Students should work closely with an advisor to obtain program and course selection information.
