Technology Studies: Technology and Engineering Education Option
A College of Technology Pathway
The Connecticut College of Technology is an innovative program leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in engineering or technology. The program consists of two distinct pathways, one in Engineering Science and one in Technology Studies. After completing the Technology Studies Pathway Program at Three Rivers, students may enter directly into technical fields at Central Connecticut State University or Charter Oak State College (Connecticut's External Degree Program). The Engineering Science Pathway leads directly into the School of Engineering at the University of Connecticut or the University of New Haven.
The pathway courses will transfer to engineering and technology programs at many other public and private universities as well.

The Technology and Engineering Education option to the Technology
studies associate degree program provides specific course work
students need to pursue a B.S. degree in Technology and Engineering
Education at Central Connecticut State University. The courses for
this option were also approved by CCSU for articulation into their
B.S. in Industrial Technology.
A minimum course grade of "C" is required in all courses below for continuing at CCSU's School of Engineering and Technology.
