Oregon Tech is proud to introduce a new Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Technology and Management degree program. The BAS degree will be offered in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Management, beginning January 2012.

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Technology and Management (BAS) is designed for students who have earned an Associate of Science (AS) or Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in a vocational or technical career field and want to obtain a bachelor degree for career enhancement. Examples of AS and AAS technical degrees include:

  • Diesel Technology
  • Automotive Technology
  • Construction Management
  • Electronics Technology
  • Aviation
  • Computer Technical Support
  • Engineering Technology
  • Environmental Technology
  • Criminal Justice

Technical AS or AAS degrees have traditionally been terminal degrees with few credits transferrable into a bachelor degree. Students can now apply up to 60 career and technical education credits toward the BAS, enabling a bachelor degree to be completed with 2-3 years of additional full-time study. Students who pursue the BAS complete a broad general education core plus advanced courses in business, management, accounting, and information technology designed to complement their associate-level technology courses.

“We are pleased to offer this new Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Technology and Management. This degree will allow people who have completed a technical Associate’s degree to easily complete a Bachelor’s degree which will enable them to advance their careers. Since this degree will be offered in Klamath Falls, Portland, and online it will be available to help all Oregonians with a technical Associate’s degree.” said Charlie Jones, Ph.D., Dean of the College of Engineering, Technology, and Management at Oregon Tech.
