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 experiential laboratory experiences. Students may choose from a variety of four year Bachelor of Science or two year Associate of Science degree study programs.
 
The Bachelor of Science majors offered in the Department of Technology include Automotive Technology, Aviation Technology, Graphic Design, and Graphic Imaging. Each of these majors include a number of core courses specifically designed to provide a broad technical experience. Along with the technical expertise these majors provide communication, writing and people skills through the general studies program of the college. The combining of the specific major requirements, the technical core courses and the general studies program provides the student with exemplary skills for today's workplace.
 
The Associate of Science majors offered in the Department of Technology include Automotive Technology, Aviation Technology, Computer Networks, Graphics Technology, and Web Design and Development. Each major 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 programs may occur with minimal loss of credit.
 
Courses in the Department of 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.
