Ferris Board Approves New Associate Degree Program

The Ferris State University Board of Trustees voted to create a new Associate of Applied Science degree in Plastics and Polymer Engineering Technology during its regular meeting recently, the Big Rapids Pioneer reports. This degree will combine two associate degree programs, the AAS in Plastics Engineering Technology (PET) and the AAS in Rubber Engineering Technology (RET). The decision to create one new associate degree and close the current AAS degree programs was made after College of Engineering Technology faculty and staff determined students enrolled in the associate degree programs for PET or RET would be better served through one program. Students currently enrolled in either the PET or RET associate degree programs will be able to complete their studies under this proposal.
