Certificates and Technical Programs

Certificates and Associate of Applied Science degrees, generally in technical areas, are programs of study designed for those students who wish to prepare for employment in business and industry. These programs offer students the opportunity to develop necessary skills in the shortest amount of time. Students finishing these programs move immediately into the job market or continue on with their education at four-year institutions or trade schools. Although these are not meant to be transfer programs, students may sometimes transfer to specialized programs or trade schools.
