Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Technology - Associate in Applied Science-Transfer (AAS-T)

This program differs from the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Technology Associate in Applied Science degree by offering more general education as part of the core requirement, making it more transferrable to colleges and universities who chose to articulate with South Puget Sound Community College. The only current accepted articulation for this AAS-T degree is with The Evergreen State College as part of their up-side-down degree.
