Purpose: The curriculum is designed to prepare the student to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program in engineering fields such as: mechanical engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, aeronautical engineering, and naval architecture/marine engineering.
Recommended Preparation: High school courses: 4 units of English, 2 units of algebra, 1 unit of geometry, 1 unit of trigonometry, 1 unit of laboratory science (chemistry or physics).
Completion Requirements: Grades of "C" and above are required in those courses in the program that are intended to be transferred for credit to a baccalaureate degree-granting college/university.
Total credits for the A.S. Degree in Engineering = 63.
1 For students planning to transfer to GMU, GWU or UMD, CHM 126 is recommended.
2 The PED requirement may be met by one of the following options: PED 116, 2 cr.; PED 220, 2 cr.; PED 116, 1 cr. plus a PED activities course, 1 cr.; or PED 116, 1 cr. plus RPK 205, 207, 208, 216, or 225. PED 116 is offered as both a 1-credit and a 2-credit course.
