The Restaurant Production Associate of Applied Science Transfer (AAS-T) degree assists students in learning the food production skills necessary to operate multifaceted food service operations. Food management classes also train students in inventory control, operations analysis, purchasing, production, supervision, and personnel management.
Students hone their craft through operating South’s Food Court (featuring classic and contemporary menus, a short order grill, grab-and-go items and a delicatessen) and Alhadeff Grill, a waited-service dining room featuring cooked-to-order menus with preparation typical of upscale restaurants in the Pacific Northwest.
The department works closely with the hospitality industry to develop innovative, realistic programs that provide students with skills needed for successful employment.
This degree is designed for students to learn technical skills for employment, but who may also want to transfer to a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree program or a four-year institution.
