Northwest State Community College and Miami University have formed a partnership that allows engineering technologies students to earn a Bachelor of Applied Science in Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology from Miami University without ever leaving the Northwest State campus.
“This degree is specifically targeted to students who have recently earned, or are currently working towards an associate degree in Electrical, Mechanical, Electro-Mechanical or similarly titled engineering technology programs at Northwest State. Graduates from other Engineering Technology programs will also receive favorable credit transfer,” said Dan Burklo, dean of the Math, Science & Engineering Technologies Division at Northwest State. “Once a student has completed the associate degree, they are eligible to continue classes for a bachelor’s degree from Miami University right here at Northwest State.”
One of the many advantages of this partnership is that students will be able to take the first three years of course work through Northwest State, at the community college’s tuition rate. The final year of courses required through Miami University will be offered via synchronous distance learning at the Northwest State campus.
“Miami University’s distance engineering technology program is now the largest in the state with twelve partner institutions,” said Ayo Abatan, chair of Miami’s Engineering Technology Department. “We are proud to welcome Northwest State as a partner and hope to create many new, accessible educational pathways for engineering technology students there.”
The engineering technology distance classes will be broadcast from Miami University’s regional campuses at Hamilton and Middletown, Ohio.
