Department of Systems and Industrial Engineering
Manufacturing Operations, BAS
The Bachelor of Applied Science in Manufacturing Operations has been specifically designed for students who have completed an Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Applied Technology Degree from a Technical College System of Georgia or any regionally accredited 2-year institution.
The goal of the partnership between KSU and the TCSG schools to provide the opportunity for degreed graduates from the technical schools of Georgia and other accredited Technical Schools across the country to complete a Bachelor’s degree in approximately two years as a full time student. Students must graduate from a TCSG or any regionally accredited 2-year school with an AAS or AAT degree. Courses from the degree program will transfer as a block or as individual credit as outlined for each program.
The Department reviews each student’s TCSG transcript and can allow up to 18 semester hours credit applicable to the Lower Division Major Requirements (Area F) and 18 semester hours applicable Upper Division Major Requirements. Should the transfer course credit total less than 36 hours, the Department Chair will advise the student on courses to complete the shortage of hours.
This is a suggested 2 + 2 year schedule of courses based on the Manufacturing Operations degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 KSU Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.)
Terms 1-4 are examples of credit applied from courses taken at the TCSG institution.
Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggested to prevent delays in program completion.
Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.
This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.
You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
