Engineering Technology B.A.S.

Mission Statement

The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Engineering Technology (ET) provides a baccalaureate pathway for students who have earned select two-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees. This new flexible and affordable 3+1 degree program is a partnership between Nevada State College and the College of Southern Nevada (CSN). Students from CSN who have completed the following 2-year AAS degrees may pursue the appropriate BAS option:

  • AAS in Computing and Information Technology with an emphasis in Networking transfers into the BAS-ET Computer Networking track.
  • AAS in Engineering Technology with an emphasis in either Electronics (Bench Technician, Biomedical Equipment Technician, or Defense Contractor Technician), Self-Serve Device Technician, or Slot Repair transfers into the BAS-ET Electronics track.
  • AAS in Engineering Technology with Telecommunications emphasis transfers into the BAS-ET Telecommunications track.

After completing the 2-year AAS degree at CSN, students will take one additional year of advanced technical 300- and 400-level courses at CSN using their state-of-the-art, multimillion-dollar computer networking, electronics, and telecommunications facilities, and one year of management and upper-division general education courses at Nevada State College to complete their degree.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the BAS-Engineering Technology degree, successful students will:

  • Demonstrate advanced technical proficiency in computer networking, electronics, or telecommunications technology.
  • Integrate leadership, human resource management, quality assurance, productivity analysis, and customer service management skills into the workplace.
  • Model work-based experience gained from accredited programs and coursework monitored by business and industry subject matter experts in regularly held advisory committees.
  • Evaluate principles of management and organizational behavior in the workplace.
  • Explain why employability skills such as communications, teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, and other "soft skills" are vitally important in the workplace.
