The Bachelor or Science in Applied Technology is designed for students transferring from a community college with a completed or partially completed technical associates degree.
Community colleges offer a variety of technical associate degree programs that do not have bachelor degree counterparts at four-year institutions such as Eastern Michigan University. Take advantage of the 3+1 articulation agreement with select community colleges.
The BS in Applied Technology requires a minimum of 124 credit hours consisting of general education requirements and major requirements.
The Applied Technology major consists of 55 credit hours. Students can transfer up to 34 hours of technical credit into the major assuming the grades are C or better. The remaining 21 hours are taken in the Industrial Technology Department.
The 21 hours are called restricted electives and must be approved by an advisor. More specifically, 6 hours must be at the 100 - 400 level and 15 hours must be at the 300-400 level.
***EMU’s Applied Technology program is being phased out effective Fall semester 2016. Students who started the program at HFC prior to September 2016 have until August 31, 2018 to transfer to EMU under the articulation agreement.
