Bachelor of Applied Science

According to the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC), applied bachelorís degrees fill skill gaps in practical, market-driven fields where job requirements have advanced beyond the associate degree level. They add junior and senior levels to two-year professional-technical (vocational) degrees which can include a two-year management track on top of a two-year technical education, or a continuation of a professional-technical degree.

Program Mission: To Facilitate the Transformation of Technical Professionals into Technical Leaders.

Program Vision: Our vision is to educate technical professionals across a wide range of professions to serve as leaders who foster continuous improvement and empower the growth of others in their organization, community, and world.
