PGM Code – 603T
Program Description The AAS-T in Materials Science Technology is a professional technical degree with a core of general education courses commonly accepted in transfer. It is designed to prepare graduates to enter into industry or to prepare students who wish to transfer to other colleges or universities having specific bachelor’s degree programs that accept the AAS-T degree.
Students seeking to transfer to degree programs other than those specifically designed for the AAS-T should consider the Associate of Arts or the AS Track 2 - OTRE , specifically designed for transfer four-year colleges and universities.
All students who intend to transfer should meet with an adviser of the college to which they plan to transfer, and review specific admission requirements.

Credit/Grade Requirements The AAS-T degree is awarded upon completion of a minimum of 90 credits as outlined in the program requirements. A minimum of 30 credits or one-third of the required credits, whichever is less, must be earned at Edmonds Community College. Students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in all college-level courses.
Cultural Diversity Requirement All students earning degrees and certificates of 45 credits or more must meet a cultural diversity (CD) requirement. CD classes appear in the class listings section of the quarterly schedule.
Students pursuing an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree must take at least five (5) credits of CD courses. Courses that satisfy the CD requirement address at least two of the three areas below:
- Knowledge of culture and its influence on individuals and groups in our society
- Awareness of attitudes and values regarding life in a multicultural society
- Skills to recognize, analyze, and evaluate multicultural perspectives and issues
Students are advised to
- Consult with an engineering faculty adviser quarterly for course selection and completion of degree requirements and plan their schedule several quarters in advance (Note: all decisions on selection of courses are ultimately the responsibility of the student),
- Review the college catalog for required course prerequisites and include these in schedule planning, and
- Send for transcripts from other colleges where the student has earned credits and request a transcript evaluation. Transcripts are to be mailed to the Enrollment Services Office at Edmonds Community College. Transcript evaluation forms are available though Enrollment Services.
