BAS-ET Program Guide: Pathway 1

The BAS-ET degree program at WVC provides students with the depth of knowledge, critical thinking skills, problem solving skills and practical skills in key engineering areas that are necessary to begin a career in engineering technology. The degree will focus on electronics and mechatronics. As an emerging field, mechatronics is comprised of multiple facets of engineering, including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunications engineering, controls engineering and computer engineering. After completing this degree, students will possess the technical skills to be immediately productive in the workforce and have successful careers in regional, state or national electronic and mechanical product and system development industries.

Pathway One: 
Entering into the program with associate of arts and sciences direct transfer agreement (AAS-DTA) degree earned. To qualify for direct entry into the BAS-ET program, the following courses should be completed within the AAS: MATH& 141, 142, 146, 151, 152, 153; PHYS& 114, 115, 116; CHEM& 121, 161, 162; ELEC 115, 125.
