Electrical Engineering Specialization AN

[ NVCC Home Page | Catalog Search | Table of Contents | Instructional Programs | Previous Page | Next Page ]
Purpose: The curriculum is designed to permit the student to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program in Electrical Engineering. All B.S. (EE) degree-granting colleges/universities require specific preparation in the sophomore year for EE majors.

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 with a Specialization in Electrical Engineering =62.

1 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.

2 Or substitute EGR 126 (3 cr.)

3 Must include one semester of history (American or Western Civilization) plus a second semester of history, economics, psychology, or sociology.

4 Humanities electives may be chosen from ART, ENG, HUM, MUS, PHI, REL, SPD, or foreign languages.

5 EGR 206 (2 credits) required at VPI and desirable elsewhere. EGR 266 is required for EE curriculum at all universities.

* These courses are not required for the A.S. degree; however, completion of them is desirable for transfer as a junior in Electrical Engineering. Consult the requirements of your transfer institution.
