Here in TECH, we help you develop a great mind, a heart for service, beauty as you express yourself through your work, and a repertoire that demonstrates real world skills, for real world careers, shedding God's light as you go. As well, we offer you the unique opportunity to combine valuable experience and essential technical skills with the mind, body, and spiritual expansion you can get only from a Christian liberal arts education. Here you will study and learn in state-of-the-art labs with a faculty who possesses industry experience. This combination of Project Based Learning for real life will send you out into the marketplace a cut above the rest.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Technology provides a choice of majors from which students may choose. The technical majors include Automotive Service, Aviation Technology, Graphic Design, and Product Design. Additionally, and co-offered with the WWU School of Business, are Automotive Management and Aviation Management.
Each of these majors includes a number of core courses specifically designed to provide a broad technical and academic experience. Along with the technical expertise, these programs provide communication, writing and people skills through the general studies program of the university. This combination provides the student with an exemplary skill set for today’s workplace.
The Associate of Science degree in Technology is offered with majors in Automotive Technology, Aviation Technology, and Graphic Communication. Each A.S. program is designed to prepare graduates for entry-level employment in that particular field. In each case, a strong technical background is offered balancing theory with hands-on lab 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 continuing in the baccalaureate program may readily occur.
The Department of Technology offers minors in a variety of technical areas. The Photography minor is available for students who choose to specialize in photography using digital media. A minor in Technology provides the student with technical knowledge and skill development in a variety of areas including Machining, Welding, and Woods. The Aviation, Graphic Arts, and Web Design minors offer students in other major fields of study the opportunity to add these specialty studies.
