The General Technology program is designed to allow students the opportunity to create a course of study that meets individual needs and goals. Working with the program coordinator, the General Technology major drafts a degree contract listing all courses the student will complete to earn the degree. The program’s flexibility is most advantageous to the individual whose employment or career goals are clearly defined.
