Technology Management - CBE On Demand
WKU On Demand Technology Management Degree
The Bachelor of Science degree in Technology Management is a capstone program that equips students with the knowledge and skills needed to assume a supervisory position in industry. This competency-based program is offered in an on-demand format compatible with your busy life – managing work, overtime, family, and personal commitments. Relocations, travel, shift changes, etc. won’t impact your progress as you move through the program at your own pace.
The degree is designed for students who have previously earned a technical credential –diploma, certification, certificate, A.A.S., or associate degree with a minimum of 24 hours of technical credit. Military students may use their joint services transcript to document technical credit as evaluated by ACE (the American Council on Education). Additionally, up to 21 additional hours of previously earned credits, as well as earned general education courses, can be applied to the degree program.
Gen Ed Certification
Students who have an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree from a regionally-accredited college are considered Gen Ed Certified, which means your gen ed credits are considered complete upon entry at WKU. If not, WKU On Demand offers all the courses you’ll need to complete your bachelor’s degree.
