Computer technology is an Associate of Applied Science (AAS.) Traditionally, AAS degrees are technical in nature with some general education requirements. If your interest is in computer networks and telecommunication systems; computer numerical control; automated machine operations; computer animation and graphics; or multimedia, computer technology might be for you. Upon completion, all of these options transition into bachelor degrees.
Automated manufacturing combines industrial technology and manufacturing components to prepare students for positions in the manufacturing/production sectors of industry. Course work includes robotics, computer aided manufacturing, computer numerical control, programmable logic controllers, materials testing, industrial materials and processes, and drafting and solid modeling.
