Manufacturing Operations Bachelors Degree

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Manufacturing Operations has been specifically designed for students who have completed an Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Applied Technology Degree from a Technical College System of Georgia or any regionally accredited 2-year institution.

This degree prepares students in the areas of manufacturing, operations, logistics and supply chain through an industry-driven curriculum encompassing manufacturing processes, quality principles, engineering economy, work measurement and facilities layout.

All required major courses to complete the BAS in Manufacturing Operations program are offered totally online by KSU faculty. All general education requirements are also offered on-line through the university system called E-core. Online participants can attend class "virtually", meaning the student can attend class at a designated time/day through the Internet.  Optionally, students can choose not to attend virtually and catch up through video lectures, recorded archives, and/or discussion groups.
