NOVA 2012-2013 College Catalog: Programs of Study

ENGINEERING
Electrical Engineering Specialization
 
Associate of Science Degree AN


Purpose: The curriculum is designed to permit the student to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program in Electrical Engineering (EE). All B.S.E.E. degree-granting colleges/universities require specific preparation in the sophomore year for EE majors.

Transfer Information: Students are advised to work closely with the faculty and counseling staff for program and course scheduling. Electives should be chosen carefully to meet requirements of transfer institution. The responsibility for proper course selection rests with the student.

Recommended Preparation: High school courses: 4 units of English, 2 units of algebra, 1 unit of geometry, 1 unit of trigonometry, and 1 unit of laboratory science (chemistry or physics).

Completion Requirements: Grades of C and above are required in courses intended to be transferred for credit to a baccalaureate degree-granting college/university.

1 Although students who have graduated with a transfer-oriented A.A., A.S., or A.A. & S. degree or any baccalaureate or higher degree from a regionally accredited United States institution of higher education will have most of their general education considered as met, they must meet the math and science requirements specified for this program. Exceptions must be approved by the division dean responsible for the student's curriculum.

2 Students may substitute the SDV 101 Orientation section related to this program.

3 CSC 201 should be substituted for EGR 126 for transfer to GMU.

4 ENG 125 may be substituted with the advice of a counselor or academic advisor according to requirements of transfer institutions.

5 The CST elective may be selected from the following: CST 100, 110, 115, 126, 227 or 229.

6 EGR 265 may be substituted for EGR 240.

7 The social science elective may be selected from the social/behavioral sciences courses listed under General Education Electives.

8 Humanities/fine arts elective may be selected from the humanities/fine arts courses listed under General Education Electives. Electives should be selected with advice of a counselor or academic advisor to meet requirements of transfer institution.

The following courses are not required for the Electrical Engineering Specialization; however, completion of them may be desirable for transfer as a junior in Engineering. Consult the requirements of your transfer institution.
