Roane State is tops in technology grads


Roane State Community College is No. 5 in the nation in the number of degrees granted in the “science technologies/technicians” category, according to Community College Week.

Roane State’s general technology majors are counted in that category.


Community College Week reports that Roane State had 39 graduates in science technologies/technicians in 2003.

General technology majors typically fall into one of two groups, according to Russ Schubert, dean of Roane State’s business and technology division: Students who have earned a diploma at a Tennessee technology center or a technical certificate at the community college. They are granted credit for the college-level technical learning they have already attained. Students seeking a customized degree program not available through Roane State’s regular associate of applied science programs.

The college has a goal of increasing enrollment in general technology by 10 percent over the next five years, Schubert said.

“I am working on expanding the transfer agreements we have with our regional Tennessee technology centers as one of the ways to meet that goal,” he said.

According to Community College Week, the schools ranking in the top five in production of graduates in science technologies/technicians were, Lamar Institute of Technology and Brazosport College, both located in Texas; Cleveland State Community College, Southwest Tennessee Community College and Roane State Community College.
