Articulation Agreement enables WATC grads to continue their studies at WSU’s College of Engineering

Wichita Area Technical College (WATC) and Wichita State University (WSU) have partnered to make a future in Engineering Technology more accessible to Kansas students.  A new Articulation Agreement enables students completing WATC ‘s A.A.S. degree in Machining Technology, Robotics, or Industrial Automation and Machine Maintenance to use their WATC credits in pursuit of a B.S. degree in Engineering Technology at WSU’s College of Engineering. Concentrations are available in Mechatronics or Engineering Technology Management.

Students who are enrolled in the Robotics program at WATC already benefit from a cooperative effort between WATC, the National Institute of Aviation Research (NIAR) at WSU, and the Great Plains Robotics Alliance. This cooperation affords WATC students to a shared robotics laboratory fully equipped with cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art machines.
