Yonas B., Alumnus, Materials Science Technology AAS-T degree, now working as an MP&P Technical Analyst.

Manufacturing and Materials Technology Associate of Technical Arts.

It provides the knowledge and understanding of composite manufacturing procedures and processes and competitive skills for entry-level jobs in several manufacturing industries. It also provides a strong foundation to continue with the AAS-T degree in Materials Science.

Associate in Applied Science-T degree in Materials Science.

By taking the technical courses required for a job in the field with the option to pursue a bachelor's degree, a student can both prepare themselves to go to work and transfer to a bachelor of science degree at specific schools. Those who already hold a bachelors degree but wish to learn the field of composites may also find that this program will meet their needs.  This degree will prepare you for the new Bachelor of Applied Science in Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Engineering Technology (AMMET)  degree that begins in Fall of 2022.  See edmonds.edu/program/bas/ammet for more information.
