About the Program

In 2011, the College received an Advanced Technology Education (ATE) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop the AAS degree program in collaboration with Drexel University.

Bucks recently won another NSF ATE grant in 2019 to increase the number of workforce-ready engineering technicians in the region. This degree is occupational with an option to transfer to a four-year program.

This is a collaboration between our Center for Workforce Development, our Business and Innovation Department and Drexel University.
