Technology (Transfer Program)
Bachelor of Science Degree
The Technology (transfer program) at the University of Central Missouri prepares individuals for a professional career in business. This program builds on technical courses of an associate degree in the field of applied sciences and technology. Thirty-eight semester hours of junior/senior division coursework in the major must be taken through UCM.
The Technology curriculum concentrates on technical management courses that include quality supervision, scheduling/ control, engineering principles, safety, work design, ergonomics, plant layout, cost estimating, and team problem solving.
In addition to these studies, the transfer student will also need to complete additional general education courses, which can be taken at any accredited two-year or four-year college or university, as long as they are equivalent to UCM's courses. Currently, we have program options in Manufacturing, Management, Construction, Electronics, General Technology, Quality Systems, and Virtual Media.
Student Organization of Construction Managers (SOCM), and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) relate to this degree program.
University of Central Missouri's baccalaureate programs in automotive management, computer-aided drafting and design, construction management, and electronics are accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).
