Articulation Agreements

Apollo has articulation agreements which link the classes taken at Apollo with courses offered at State supported two-year colleges. The intent of the articulation plan is to recognize student achievement in career programs by providing advanced placement at the college level. The advanced credit earned reduces the number of credit hours needed for a degree. Students will not need to re-take classes already completed.

According to the Department of Labor,, “Industrial engineers are expected to have employment growth of 14 percent over the projections decade, faster than the average for all occupations. As firms look for new ways to reduce costs and raise productivity, they increasingly will turn to industrial engineers to develop more efficient processes and reduce costs, delays, and waste. …many industrial engineers leave the occupation to become managers.”
