Materials Science Technology Associate of Applied Science-T Degree

See program requirement sheet. 

Program Description The AAS-T in Materials Science Technology is a professional technical degree with a core of general education courses commonly accepted in transfer. It is designed to prepare graduates to enter into industry or to prepare students who wish to transfer to other colleges or universities having specific bachelor’s degree programs that accept the AAS-T degree.

Students seeking to transfer to degree programs other than those specifically designed for the AAS-T should consider the Associate of Arts Degree  or the Associate of Science Degree - Track 2 - Mechanical, Civil, Aeronautical, Industrial, Materials Science, Pre-Engineering , specifically designed for transfer four-year colleges and universities.

All students who intend to transfer should meet with an adviser of the college to which they plan to transfer, and review specific admission requirements.

Credit/Grade Requirements The AAS-T degree is awarded upon completion of a minimum of 90 credits as outlined in the program requirements. A minimum of 30 credits or one-third of the required credits, whichever is less, must be earned at Edmonds Community College. Students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in all college-level courses.

Cultural Diversity Requirement All students earning degrees and certificates of 45 credits or more must meet a cultural diversity (CD) requirement by completing courses marked as “CD” on the requirement sheet and/or “Meets Cultural Diversity Requirement” in the quarterly class schedule. Those courses may also be used to fulfill other requirements of the degree or certificate.

Graduation Application A completed Graduation Application form must be submitted to Enrollment Services by the 10th day of the quarter in which the student expects to graduate. Forms are available online or at Enrollment Services located in Lynnwood Hall.

Students are advised to:

  • Consult with an engineering faculty adviser quarterly for course selection and completion of degree requirements and plan their schedule several quarters in advance (Note: all decisions on selection of courses are ultimately the responsibility of the student),
  • Review the college catalog for required course prerequisites and include these in schedule planning, and
  • Send for transcripts from other colleges where the students has earned credits and request a transcript evaluation. Transcripts are to be mailed to the Enrollment Services Office at Edmonds Community College. Transcript evaluation forms are available though Enrollment Services.
