The environmental technology program will prepare you to serve as field and laboratory technicians for a wide variety of industrial and governmental employers involved in environmental testing, remediation, and monitoring. The program is an interdisciplinary one, including extensive faculty and laboratory capacity in chemistry, biology, instrumentation, soil and plant sciences, environmental engineering, and spatial analysis, as well as a common core of general studies.
Alfred State environmental technology graduates may enter directly into either the interdisciplinary studies BTech or the technology management BBA degree program.
For students wishing to transfer to bachelor-level programs in environmental science, electives can be selected that meet specific requirements of transfer institutions.
Employment and continuing education rate of 100 percent – 100 percent are employed.
Required: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Biology, Chemistry
