Given advancements in technology, society is calling upon engineers to solve the world’s most complex problems.
That call is being answered thanks to a unique partnership between the College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky UK and the Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC). Students can now earn an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Engineering Technology.
The new Department of Engineering Technology — made possible in large part to a $2.25 million gift from Toyota — offers two four-year undergraduate degrees in lean systems engineering technology and computer engineering technology.
Additionally, the innovative collaboration involves BCTC’s Integrated Engineering Technology and Computer Engineering Technology programs.
Graduates of the new pathways will be trained in the latest technologies and equipped with the practical skills necessary for thriving in advanced technology industries.
