PETOSKEY — Students planning to earn a bachelor’s degree in engineering technology can now start their education closer to home — and at significant savings — thanks to a new degree program at North Central Michigan College.

Available this fall, the science degree with an engineering technology focus allows graduates to complete general education requirements with a foundation in math, science and engineering before moving on to an undergraduate program at a university. Credits earned will transfer to North Central partner institutions, including Central Michigan University, Ferris State University and Lake Superior State University.

“This pathway will allow for a seamless transition into a four-year program for any engineering major,” said Stephen Strom, vice president of academic affairs. “It’s also an opportunity for students to enter the workforce with industry-recognized certifications or gain skills to expand their careers as an advanced manufacturing technician.”
