College of Technology (Technology Studies Engineering Technology Option)

This course of study leads to an Associate Degree in Engineering and Technology. It provides an integrated curriculum involving Connecticut’s public colleges and universities. Through the College of Technology, individuals can begin studies at Capital Community College and transfer directly to the School of Engineering at The University of Connecticut, or the School of Technology at Central Connecticut State University, or Charter Oak College (Connecticut’s public online degree program). A student in the College of Technology will begin studies by enrolling in one of two “pathway” programs, the “Engineering Pathway” or the “Technology Pathway.” Students enrolled in designated College Career Pathways programs at high schools may apply their credits toward these pathway programs.

The College of Technology offers benefits that include an affordable and accessible start to higher education; a clear pathway from CCC to a four-year college or university, without losing credits or having to repeat coursework; and the opportunity to begin college studies part or full-time, using the broad support services available, and lower four-year costs. In some cases, students choosing a technology pathway can also receive credits toward a bachelor’s degree from independent study, work experience, or other college courses.
