NCMC announces new engineering technology degree pathway

PETOSKEY — Students planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree in engineering technology can now begin their education closer to home –– and at a significant cost savings –– thanks to North Central Michigan College’s newest program of study.

Available this fall, the associate of science degree with a concentration in engineering technology allows graduates to fulfill general education requirements, with a foundation in math, science and engineering, prior to moving on to a bachelor’s degree program at a university. Credits earned will transfer to North Central’s partner institutions, including Central Michigan University, Ferris State University and Lake Superior State University.

“This pathway will allow for seamless transfer into a four-year program in any engineering specialty,” said vice president of academic affairs Stephen Strom. “It’s also an opportunity for students to enter the workforce with industry-recognized certifications, or ‘upskill’ to expand a career as an advanced manufacturing technician.”
