Associate of Science in Nuclear Technology
It is highly recommended that all freshmen engineering students starting fall 2017 purchase laptop computers. Laptop computer specifications are at: https://www.atu.edu/engineering/specifications.php.
Mechanical Engineering also offers a two-year program leading to the Associate of Science in Nuclear Technology (ASNT) degree. This degree is designed to allow students to obtain the knowledge base and training necessary to work in one of the many areas in the nuclear field. While many technology degrees, especially at the associate’s level, are seen as less rigorous paths, the ASNT program at Arkansas Tech University includes most of the same courses as the first two years of the engineering programs.
Graduates of the program leading to the Associate of Science Degree in Nuclear Technology may find employment in many areas of the nuclear industry. Many past ASNT graduates have continued their studies to obtain bachelor's degrees in engineering or the physical sciences either at Arkansas Tech University or at other institutions.
For a detailed policy regarding transfer credit for the Mechanical Engineering programs, please see the Department of Mechanical Engineering page.
