Arts, Sciences, and University Transfer (ASUT)

Durham Tech's Arts, Sciences, and University Transfer (ASUT) program allows a student to complete up to two years of course work for a baccalaureate degree. The wide variety of freshman-level and sophomore-level courses satisfies general education requirements at senior institutions across the United States. Completion of the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degrees enables an eligible student to transfer as a junior to University of North Carolina System institutions after acceptance at the four-year university.

From Durham Tech to M.I.T., Karoui’s team snags first at national robotics competition

Mohamed Karoui had been awake for 48 hours.

After a full day of travel and an 18-hour robotics competition, Karoui found himself asleep on the floor of the Lesley University library in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The good news – his team won.

Earlier this year, Karoui, 25, was accepted to compete in an overnight robotics competition at the 2017 Robotics: Science and Systems Conference at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. More commonly known as “Hackathon,” participants were tasked with programming and maneuvering autonomous rovers through an obstacle course while picking up as many resources, or Styrofoam cubes, as possible along the way.
