Curriculum at Washburn Tech is designed to prepare students for the work place. The curriculum approval process starts with curriculum that is develop by qualified instructors in consultation with industry experts. New curriculum and substantive curriculum changes are approved by each program’s advisory board made up of local and regional employers. The curriculum is next approved by the Curriculum Committee. The process is managed and overseen by the chief academic officer, the Associate Dean for Instruction. New programs are approved by the Washburn University Board of Regents and then reviewed and approved by the Kansas Postsecondary Technical Education Authority and the Kansas Board of Regents.
Curriculum changes that are approved by the Curriculum Committee are entered into the Kansas Board of Regents’ data base for each program. Current syllabi for each program are available on the website. Washburn Tech has participated fully in the state program alignment process and offers aligned curricula in those programs that have completed that process.
