Both students said the TECS Career Center and department faculty helped them learn about the opportunity. Dr. Krishnan Gopalakrishnan and Dr. Junhua Ding in computer science and Lee Toderick in the BSIT program were instrumental in the recommendations required for the applications, they said.



Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology Transfer Program

The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BSIT) Transfer Program is a degree completion curriculum designed for students who have been awarded a qualified Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in an industrial or technical related field.

The courses completed in the qualified technical AAS degree provide the foundation and half of the courses required in the major for the Industrial Technology degree. This BS degree program has the flexibility to allow students to tailor a curriculum to their specific career goals.

The curriculum also has a strong emphasis in management, which allows the graduate to function well in either technical or decision-making career fields.

Admission Requirements for Approved AAS Degrees for BSIT and CMGT:

This information can also be found on ECU Admission’s website (http://www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/admissions/transfer.cfm).

Students transferring with an Associate of Applied Science Degree, earned at a North Carolina Community College, into one of the following programs: Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BSIT) and Bachelor of Science in Construction Management (effective Spring 2013)

  • Completed Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in approved technical area by the first day of enrollment at ECU.  The approved AAS programs can be viewed at www.ecu.edu/tecs/bsit
  • Cumulative 2.5 GPA from all post-secondary institutions attended.
  • Must have completed a minimum of 30 transferable credit hours including the equivalents to ECU's ENGL 1100 Composition.
    Note: Applicants with an approved AAS degree on the list located at www.ecu.edu/tecs/bsit will meet the 30 transferable hours required for admission, but still must have the equivalents to ECU's ENGL 1100 Composition.
  • If under the age of 24 on the first day of enrollment at ECU, student must have completed the minimum course requirements (MCR) prior to high school graduation or have completed 6 transferable credit hours in each of the following:  English, Math, Science, Social Science and Foreign Language at the college level.  NOTE:  Completion of an AAS degree will not satisfy a MCR deficiency from high school.

The BSIT program has professionally trained Academic Advisors who assist AAS students with their transition to ECU. These advisors encourage students who are interested in transferring to the BSIT program to make contact as early as their first semester at community college.  These individuals help make the transition from community college to ECU a smooth one.
