Message from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Applied Sciences and Technology!   


As our name implies, a consistent theme within the college's academic programs is applied learning. In other words, we emphasize learning by doing. Our students are expected to apply the knowledge and skills that they've learned in the classroom and in our laboratories – both on and off campus. We believe this academic formula (i.e., knowledge + practice = mastery) best prepares our graduates for the marketplace in their chosen profession. If this sort of academic program appeals to you, then you've come to the right place for your educational needs.

We have an outstanding faculty who in many cases are considered national and international leaders in their respective professions. Our faculty are committed to providing both rigorous and contemporary programs of study, which is evidenced by the high success rates on certification and licensure exams for students graduating from our programs. Our faculty are also committed to serving as mentors and professional role models for our students both in and out of the classroom to enhance their professional training, and in a more global sense, to facilitate their development as productive and responsible members of society.

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope we've provided you with the information you were looking for. If you have questions please feel free to contact department representatives directly through links on their respective sties, or you can contact me at 765-285-5816.
