Students completing Wichita Area Technical College’s associate of applied sciences degree in machining technology, robotics or electromechanical systems can now use their those credits in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in engineering technology at Wichita State University’s College of Engineering, WATC officials said in a statement.

WATC and WSU have partnered to enable this, making it easier for students at both institutions to complete a four-year degree if they choose. WSU worked out a similar agreement with Butler Community College late last year.

Concentrations are available in mechatronics or engineering technology management, WATC officials said.

Students who are enrolled in the robotics program at WATC already benefit from a cooperative effort between WATC, the National Institute of Aviation Research (NIAR) at WSU and the Great Plains Robotics Alliance. This cooperation affords WATC students to a shared robotics laboratory fully equipped with cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art machines.

Anyone wanting more information about this program can contact WATC Academic Coach Brian Lee at blee3@watc.edu or 316-677-1810.
