Business and Support Services Department


Technical General Education (TGE) course content is designed in accordance with suggestions and directions from program instructors, technical advisory committees, and industry employers. These courses complement the student's technical training in mathematics, job search skills, ethics in technology, and human relation issues pertinent to the workplace. General education objective coursework is also offered through the TGE program in English, mathematics, oral communications, and physics.

Technical General Education courses can be taken before starting a program or taken concurrently with the student’s program courses and may be required to complete the Technical Certificate, Advanced Technical Certificate, and/or Associate of Applied Science degree. Students should consult their program's required course lists to determine which of the TGE courses must be taken.
