Transfer Students - BAS Degree

Automotive Service Technology

For those who want to take their career to another level, this program offers students who have graduated from any corporate-affiliated (e.g., Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota, etc.) or general service technician program the opportunity to extend their education and training at Pittsburg State University's College of Technology in Pittsburg, Kansas.

In fact, all associate degree graduates (with a minimum of 2.5 GPA) can automatically transfer up to 64 college credits to Pittsburg State. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Applied Science (Automotive/Power Mechanics Emphasis) by taking a minimum of 60 additional hours, in as little as two years. 


Why AST?

Like the two-year technician programs, this bachelor degree gives you complete, hands-on training for a real-world job. But in addition, this four-year program gives you engineering technology, theory, logic, leadership, and business skills to broaden your knowledge, better prepare you for management opportunities, and make you a more versatile employee. You'll also have access to on-campus housing, as well as scholarship and internship opportunities.

  • Degree Requirements - University Catalog
    Program coursework is comprehensive, specialized, and well-rounded. Your course areas will include those similar to the types you took in the associate program, but with an emphasis in service management, manufacturing management, automotive technology.
  • Program Guide
