Transition into Energy Management program easy for Salt Lake CC students
Posted on 7/10/2011
Bismarck State College recently signed an articulation agreement with Salt Lake Community College for students planning to enroll in BSC's Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Energy Management online program.
Signers of the agreement are BSC officials Dr. Drake Carter, provost and vice president for academic affairs, and Kari Knudson, vice president, National Energy Center of Excellence, and Dr. Christopher Picard, provost of academic affairs at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Graduates of SLCC's two-year program in Energy Management would feed directly into the BAS program.
"This articulation agreement allows students to transition seamlessly from their technical program at SLCC into our BAS in Energy Management," said Carter. "Graduates of the BAS are set to move into managerial positions on the next rung of the career ladder."
BSC's online bachelor's degree program, begun in 2008, was created in response to requests from BSC industry partners and students and graduates of BSC's energy related two-year programs. Nearly 200 students from around the U.S. are currently enrolled in the BAS program. Thirty-seven students received the BAS degree at BSC's commencement this spring.
