Environmental, Health and Safety Technology

The associate of applied science degree in environmental, health and safety (EHandS) technology prepares students to apply their skills in science, engineering, communication and economics to issues affecting the environment. This includes such issues as the quality of air, water and land. Other areas include workplace safety, environmental regulation and compliance and various environmental systems.

Environmental career fields include data collection, instrumentation, regulation, health and safety, natural resources, waste minimization and pollution prevention.

Additionally, the EHandS technician is in demand with a vast array of manufacturing firms.

The program has been developed with ongoing input from an advisory committee of industry experts to ensure the curriculum includes the knowledge and skills needed in business and industry. Graduates of Stark State’s EHandS technology program will be uniquely qualified to meet the needs of both the private and public sectors as they face growing EHandS regulation and concern.

A graduate of this program will receive an associate of applied science degree in EHandS technology.
