An undergraduate pathway is designed for students who need to develop additional English proficiency before they can be successful in a traditional degree program. While taking the program, they focus on courses in writing, reading, speaking and listening.
A study in technology can introduce students to the integration of technology within a wide range of industries. Application for computer systems, machines and electrical devices as an option for solving human problems can often become the foundation for these studies.
