Effective Fall 2020

The Applied Technology Studies major is a flexible baccalaureate degree designed for students who desire to combine course work in more than one discipline area for business, professional, or personal reasons. A faculty adviser works with each student to design a course sequence that best meets the student’s future plans. This major is ideal for working professionals completing a degree on a part-time basis, or for transfer students seeking a B.S. in areas not directly aligned with their previous major. Online courses and internship opportunities are available.

Career Opportunities

Career opportunities will be primarily dependent on the individual student’s focus areas. For example, students who choose manufacturing engineering technology as one of their discipline areas will have career opportunities in areas closely related to manufacturing engineering technology, with special prospects supported by other discipline course work.

Special Admissions Requirements

Regular college admissions policies and procedures apply. Students must have successfully completed a minimum of 24 college-level credits before enrolling in this major.

Special Equipment Needs

Special equipment needed by students will depend on the discipline areas chosen and requirements of the courses selected.

Remediation Strategies

All incoming students must meet placement requirements in math. Students are expected to remediate any deficiencies as explained in the College Catalog (see https://www.pct.edu/catalog/admissions-policy).

Transfer Procedures

Students wishing to transfer into this major should consult with the applicable school office to determine which discipline areas are most appropriate and if openings are available within desired courses. Students wishing to pursue predominantly business-related course work should enroll in the Applied Management major.

Program Goals

A graduate of this major should be able to:
  • apply theory and knowledge in a practical manner.
  • structure written and oral communication that is clear, coherent, unified, and focused.
  • operate successfully in the workplace and in social, political, and decision-making environments using skills and knowledge developed through a general education foundation.
  • use current knowledge, access new information, integrate material from diverse fields, and work effectively with others to define and solve problems and adapt to change.
  • apply available and emerging technology to enhance on-the-job effectiveness and efficiency.
  • professionally and ethically strive for excellence, which contributes to the community, the world beyond the individual, and the global environment being passed on to others.
