Manufacturing Operations

Bachelor of Applied Science

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Manufacturing Operations has been specifically designed for students who have completed an Associate of Applied Science Degree from a Technical College System of Georgia institution. 

The goal of the partnership between SPSU and the TCSG schools is to provide the opportunity for degreed graduates from the technical schools of Georgia to complete a Bachelor's degree in approximately 60 semester credits which in equivalent to about two years as a full time student. 

All required major courses to complete the BAS in Manufacturing Operations program are offered totally online by SPSU faculty.  All general education requirements are also offered on-line through the university system called E-core.

The BAS Manufacturing Operations program prepares students in the areas of manufacturing, logistics and operations through an industry-driven curriculum encompassing manufacturing processes, quality principles, engineering economy, work measurement and facilities layout.

Companies traditionally who hire SPSU graduates include such leaders as Shaw Industries, Delta Airlines, Georgia Power, Mohawk Industries, Lockheed Martin and UPS.

Since each TCSG program is different, the website http://iet.spsu.edu/BAS.html outlines the articulation of each program to SPSU.

Further information on the TCSG and SPSU program can also be found at http://tcsg.spsu.edu/.
