Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Engineering Technology - Bachelor of Applied Science

Program Description: The BAS degree is an applied bachelor’s degree specifically designed to build on professional-technical associate’s degrees that provide workplace skills, such as the Associate in Applied Science-Transfer (AAS-T) degree. The BAS degree differs from other bachelor degrees as it incorporates prior work experience and more hands-on learning. Graduates with a BAS degree may apply to related master’s degree programs.

The Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Engineering Technology Bachelor of Applied Science (AMMET-BAS) degree provides advanced knowledge and skills for professional positions in manufacturing and laboratory environments. This degree emphasizes practical hands-on techniques in conjunction with advanced analytical skills to prepare graduates for a multitude of positions within a manufacturing or technical organization.

Acceptance into the AMMET-BAS program is by application only. This is in addition to the Edmonds College admissions process. The AMMET-BAS degree is awarded upon completion of a minimum of 180 credits as outlined.

Advising Note: This program requirement sheet is not a substitute for meeting with an academic advisor. Meeting the requirements to graduate with an Edmonds College degree is ultimately the responsibility of the student.

Proficiency Requirement (minimum 60 credits)

This degree requires completion of an Associate Applied Science-Transfer (AAS-T) degree, including 60 credits of professional technical courses from a regionally-accredited school to demonstrate proficiency in one of the following career areas:

  • Materials Science Technology
  • Mechatronics
  • Engineering Technology

See Proficiency Form for details of transferred credits, if applicable.

See Program Manager to complete Proficiency Form for transfer of credits to complete this requirement.

Bachelor of Applied Sciences General Information

BAS Degree General Description The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree is a 180 credit baccalaureate degree, specifically designed to build on professional-technical associate degrees that provide workplace skills, such as Associate of Applied Science-Transfer (AAS-T) degrees. BAS degrees include a professional core of courses from the AAS-T degree, general education credits and upper division courses. BAS degrees are a pathway to the baccalaureate level with upper-division coursework in an applied field that provide expanded career opportunities for graduates and meet the needs of employers in the community. BAS degrees incorporate more applied, hands-on learning than a traditional bachelor’s degree and allow a student to advance their skills and abilities without requiring the student to follow the traditional direct transfer degree pathway. Graduates with a BAS degree may apply to related master’s degree programs. See a program advisor for details.

Program of Study Outcomes Edmonds College’s four General Education Outcomes­ (Communicate, Act Responsibly, Reason, and Explore) are promoted throughout the college’s programs. Instructional programs of 45 credits or more foster learning in all four General Education Outcomes.

Student achievement is assessed in the general and program specific outcomes via the courses and course objectives that align with those outcomes. More information about program outcomes and course objectives can be found on the Using Program Requirement Sheets page.

Credit/Grade Requirements A minimum of 60 credits or one-third of the required college-level (100-level or above) credits, whichever is less, must be earned at Edmonds College. Students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in all college-level courses.

Students Are Advised To:

  • Consult quarterly with a faculty and/or program manager;
  • Plan your schedule several quarters in advance in order to accommodate courses that are offered only once or twice a year;
  • Review the college catalog for required course prerequisites and include these in schedule planning

Graduation Application A completed Graduation Application form must be submitted online by the 10th day of the quarter in which the student expects to graduate. Note: Applications for summer quarter are due by the 8th day of the quarter.

Transferring to Another University or College
