The General Technology A.A.S. degree program allows students flexibility to design a specialization of their choice in a broad range of technologies to enhance their employment potential. Through the General Technology curriculum, students may tailor their educational program to meet their own needs or the needs of present or potential employers. The Business and Technical concentrations allow a focus adaptable to occupational areas related to business, healthcare, information technology, and engineering technologies.
Before registering for classes, new students develop an individualized program of study with the assistance of the General Technology coordinator. After careful evaluation, students may receive credit for approved training programs as well as for applicable work experience. Students with a diploma from the Tennessee College of Applied Technology (formerly known as the Tennessee Technology Center) can receive 30 hours credit toward the General Technology A.A.S. degree. All college-level courses required for Nashville State's technical certificates are applicable to the degree in General Technology. Specific certificates that articulate to the General Technology degree include Computer-Aided Drafting, Horticulture, Music Technology, and Surgical Technology.
