On the Kent Campus, the College of Technology offers four-year programs in aeronautics, industrial technology, technology education teacher preparation, construction management and technology. At Kent State’s seven Regional Campuses, the college offers the following two-year degrees: Associate of Applied Business, Associate of Applied Science and the Associate of Technical Studies. Programs in these areas include technology, computer technology, business technology, industrial technology, engineering technology and environmental technology. These programs are described under Regional Campuses.
Many of the credits earned in the associate degree programs can be applied toward the “2+2” program for a B.S. in technology or industrial technology. These programs are described under “2+2” Concentration for Associate Degree Graduates.
Note: To receive a baccalaureate degree from the College of Technology, students must, in addition to other requirements, satisfy the 36-hour minimum stipulated in the Kent Core Requirements.
Cooperative education permits students with technical jobs to capture learning experiences at their place of employment for credit in their college curriculum. Qualified students work with their assigned faculty mentor to define the nature and technical scope of the learning involved. In most cases the faculty mentor will visit the place of employment and discuss the task with the student’s supervisor. At the conclusion of the effort, a report is required to summarize the work completed and the knowledge acquired.
Cooperative Education is available to College of Technology majors of sophomore rank or above with a 2.25 or better overall GPA. Students working full time can earn 2 credit hours a semester; 1 credit may be earned for half-time work. This course is repeatable to a maximum of 6 credits; however, some programs limit use of co-op credits to fulfill graduation requirements.
