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

Available this fall, the Associate of Science degree with a concentration in engineering technology enables graduates to meet general education requirements with a foundation in mathematics, science and engineering before proceeding to a bachelor’s degree at a university. Credits earned are transferred to North Central’s partner institutions, including Central Michigan University, Ferris State University, and Lake Superior State University.

“This path will allow for a seamless transition to a four-year program in any engineering specialty,” said Stephen Strom, vice president of academic affairs. “It’s also an opportunity for students to enter the job market with industry-recognized certifications, or to continue their education to expand their careers as advanced manufacturing engineers.”
