|Welding Technology||Associate in Occupational Studies (AOS)||
The welding technology program is taught according to the standards set by the American Welders Society (AWS) and is AWS-certified.
The program focuses on welding processes performed in all positions on both plate and pipe. Topics include proper safety methods, required math, related skills, layout and fit up, welding codes and standards, welding inspection, testing and drawing/welding symbol interpretation.
|Veterinary Technology||Associate in Applied Science (AAS)||
The veterinary technology program is designed to provide students extensive core information in the theory and principles of veterinary science. The core information is then reinforced with the hands-on technical, animal, and laboratory experiences needed to prepare them to become licensed veterinary technicians. Licensed veterinary technicians are indispensable members of the veterinary medical team who are compassionate and highly motivated professionals dedicated to animal health care. The veterinary technician is capable of providing nursing care, life support, laboratory specimen analysis, physical therapy, surgical assistance, anesthesia, dental hygiene, radiographic imaging, and nutritional management for their animal patients. The veterinary technician is also adept at client education and grief management counseling.
The undeclared major serves students who are undecided about their choice of study or career goals. The student has an opportunity to select a course of study the first two semesters that fits his/her interests and background.
A student enrolled in the undeclared major program must transfer to a degree-granting program within two semesters of admission. Depending on the choice of a major, a student may enter the workfoce upon graduation, or opt to continue his/her education at a four-year institution.
|Technology Management||Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)||
This program is available on campus and online.
|Surveying Engineering Technology||Associate in Applied Science (AAS)||
Individuals benefit from having a land surveyor determine the boundaries of their property. Governmental agencies, private industries, and individuals all benefit from the surveying and mapping of our natural resources. Surveyors help in the planning of our transportation systems, our recreational facilities, new cities, and land subdivisions.
|Surveying and Geomatics Engineering Technology||Bachelor of Science (BS)||
Individuals benefit from having a land surveyor determine the boundaries of their property. Governmental agencies, private industries, and individuals all benefit from the surveying and mapping of our natural resources. Surveyors help in the planning of our transportation systems, recreational facilities, new cities, and land subdivisions.
The modern surveyor has learned to increase his/her productivity and measurement accuracy by using modern surveying equipment such as the electronic total stations to measure angles and distances. Computational tasks and mapping are enhanced by the use of the computer.
Particularly exciting about the future of the surveying profession are the emerging technologies of Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Land Information Systems (LIS).
The course of study at Alfred State provides a thorough understanding of the basic sciences of mathematics and physics as well as such applied subjects as graphics and computer aided drafting and design. The knowledge obtained from these basic courses is applied to a well-rounded study of modern surveying theory and practice.
The student constantly applies theoretical knowledge in meaningful and comprehensive laboratory sessions. Therefore, upon graduation the student is educated in a two-fold sense, both theoretically and practically.
|Sports Management||Associate in Science (AS)||
The growing emphasis on athletics, coupled with the increasing amount of leisure time the public now enjoys, has made the world of sports one of the fastest growing segments of American business. Formation of new sports leagues, expansion of franchises to new markets, and legislative enactments opening the door for female athletes have all aided the evolution of new sports markets since the late 1980s. Increased television exposure for non-traditional sports such as soccer, volleyball, and weight training has dramatically increased career opportunities in the sports world.
|Sport Management||Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)||
The sports industry requires a great variety of people with expertise in business. To meet this growing need, the Business Department at Alfred State is offering a sport management program resulting in a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. A student will enter as a freshman and graduate in four years with a BBA degree, focusing on sport management.
