Engineering, Associate of Science

The Engineering degree program is designed for students to complete the majority of courses required by four-year institutions during the first two years of a baccalaureate engineering program. Early and direct cotnact with the university to which students are planning to transfer to complete their engineering degree is recommended, since there are wide variations between engineering programs in required and accepted courses. Course may be taken in any sequence if prerequisites are met.

Program objectives

Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be able to:

  1. gain admission to a four-year engineering program;
  2. participate as an active member of an engineering design team;
  3. solve problems such as determining forces acting on a body using fundamental engineering design calculations;
  4. conduct tests for chemical components or strength of materials; and
  5. write and present reports on results of tests and/or mathematical analyses. 

Total Number of Credits Required for Degree: 63-65*
