Associate in Applied Science in Applied Technology
Students seeking the Associate in Applied Science in Applied Technology❖ degree may enter with a technical specialty gained from completion of technical programs, armed forces programs, or comparable programs that have been evaluated by the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service.
The goal of the program is to provide students with a quality education in a technology area by emphasizing a combination of general education courses and a selection of courses in a technical specialty. The program develops a knowledge base through core courses and selected electives while advancing a generalist view of technology. The specialty courses in this degree will satisfy the technical specialty requirement of the Bachelor of Technology in Applied Technology program offered at Rogers State University.
Applied Technology Associate Degree Requirements
Students may choose from the following options:
- Advanced Manufacturing Option
- Health Sciences
- Information Technology
- Professional Services
- Unmanned Aircraft Systems
- Process Technology Option:
Refineries, power plants and large chemical plants all run 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The people that operate the various reactors, pumps, compressors, heat exchangers and other equipment must man those plants and have an understanding of physics and chemistry to allow them to make proper adjustments to flow rates, temperatures, pressures and other physical properties. Process technicians are high tech, high skill, high wage positions in the processing and manufacturing industry sectors. They work mostly in climate controlled environments, monitoring level, flow, temperature and pressure and respond to system and equipment failures to ensure smooth operations. Process technicians will also program and calibrate instrumentation and system controls.
