Abstract

Vermont Technical College (VTC) has been delivering associate degrees, designed for employees in specific industries, at the industry locations for a little over six years now. Over 250 students/employees are currently enrolled in engineering technology programs at IBM, BF Goodrich Aerospace, Verizon, and a consortium of small manufacturers in northeastern Vermont. This paper will provide an overview of the curricula design process, the on-site delivery strategies, and finally issues and concerns that still need to be addressed.
