The Program

Having the Certificate demonstrates your proficiency in specified skills. The Associate of Science (AS) Degree is recommended for students who wish to go on to a 4-year degree program. The AS includes the Certificate, plus additional Welding, Industrial Technology, and General Education. Students with the AS degree will also have demonstrated a broader educational basis and writing ability that can give them an advantage for promotional opportunities in the future. While units in this program are transferable to many institutions, students should consult a counselor for information.
