Applied Mechanical Technology AAS
The AAS in applied mechanical technology is an Associate+Bachelorís degree program that prepares students to enter and successfully complete a baccalaureate program in the College of Applied Science and Technology in manufacturing engineering technology or mechanical engineering technology. Students strengthen their skills by taking NTID English and science courses or NTID math and science courses, as well as program courses. These courses systematically address the preparatory challenges that deaf and hard-of-hearing students face upon entry to the majors in the College of Applied Science and Technology.
Students in the applied mechanical technology major receive a comprehensive foundation in engineering fundamentals: precision measurement, precision machining, computer-aided design applications, strength of materials, and machine design. Upon successful completion of the AAS degree in applied mechanical technology, students enroll directly into the bachelorís degree program in either manufacturing engineering technology or mechanical engineering technology.
ACT: Composite test score of 18 or higher
English: Placement into the College of Liberal Artsí Writing Seminar (0502-227) course; students who qualify for Written Communication II (0502-111) will be considered for admission.
Mathematics: Entrance into NTIDís Elements of Trigonometry (0884-220) course.
Science: Entrance into the College of Scienceís College Physics I course after a single NTID science course.
Students who graduate in good standing from NTID and have maintained a grade of C or better in the six NTID applied mechanical technology technical courses should be well-prepared for the College of Applied Science and Technology.
