The Department of Technology provides quality technological instruction in a Christian environment, preparing students to work in a variety of service industries. Each program is designed to combine a balance between technical theory and hands-on laboratory experiences. Students may choose from a four year Bachelor of Science or two year Associate of Science degree study program.
 
The Bachelor of Science degree in Technology provides a choice of concentrations from which the student can choose to focus. The technical concentrations include Automotive, Aviation, Biomedical Electronics, Electronics, Graphics Design, Graphics Imaging and Graphics Management. Each of these concentrations include a number of core courses specifically designed to provide a broad technical experience. Along with the technical expertise this degree provides communication, writing and people skills through the general studies program of the college. The combining of the technical concentrations, the technical core experiences and the general studies program provides the student with exemplary skills for today's workplace.
 
The Associate of Science degree in Technology is offered with concentrations in Automotive, Aviation, Electronics and Graphics. Each concentration is designed to prepare graduates for employment in that particular field. In each case, a broad technical background is offered balancing theory with laboratory experience. These programs are especially designed to serve students who wish to complete their technical training in a Christian environment with minimal general studies and time requirements. The programs are planned so that continuance in the baccalaureate program may occur with minimal loss of credit.
 
Courses in technology provide non-majors with the opportunity of developing technical skills to complement their major, provide a minor or to strengthen their background in the applied arts.
