PETOSKEY – Students wishing to pursue an engineering technology degree can now begin their education closer to home –– and at significant cost savings –– thanks to North Central Michigan College’s brand new curriculum.

Available this fall, the bachelor of science associate with an engineering technology major allows graduates to meet general education requirements, with a foundation in math, science, and engineering, before moving on to an undergraduate degree at a university . Credits earned will be transferred to North Central partner institutions, including Central Michigan University, Ferris State University, and Lake Superior State University.

“This path will enable seamless transfer into a four-year program in any engineering specialty,” said Vice President of Academic Affairs Stephen Strom. “It is also an opportunity for students to enter the world of work with industry-recognized certifications, or ‘postgraduate’ to expand their career as an advanced manufacturing engineer.”
