SALINA -- Wichita Area Technical College students wanting to earn a bachelor's degree in aeronautical technology have a clearer path to their goals through a new 2+2 agreement signed with Kansas State University Salina.
The agreement spells out which Wichita Area Technical College, or WATC, courses will transfer to K-State Salina's avionics program, which prepares students for technology jobs in the aircraft industry.
The agreement allows students to complete their two-year associate of applied science degree in avionics technology at WATC and then transfer to K-State Salina to complete their bachelor's degree
K-State Salina's Raylene Alexander, associate professor of aviation, and Alysia Starkey, assistant dean of academics, worked on the agreement with Ralph Cooper, avionics instructor and coordinator at WATC.
One student currently is enrolled in this program, which started this fall.
K-State Salina also offers other 2+2 programs with two-year colleges in Kansas. To find out more, visit http://www.salina.ksu.edu/academics/partnerships/index.html.
