An associates degree is a degree which is earned after two years of study. A technology associates degree, is a degree which can encompass many different areas of study. Students, who obtain this type of degree, are able to pursue a variety of careers. Some students choose to use their two year technology associates degree as a stepping stone to a four year bachelor degree.

Some of the most common courses of study people chose to focus on while earning a technology associates degree are in the area of computers and computing. This is a growing field with many career opportunities available in computer programming, software development, networking and database management.

Mechanical and electrical technology may be another area of study a student chooses to pursue while seeking an associates degree.
