ENGINEERING
Associate of Science Degree
Offered through AL, AN, LO, MA
 
 
CIP Code: 14.0101
 

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.

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 the 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, 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 May be selected from the following: CST 100, CST 110, CST 126, or CST 229 .

2 See 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 the transfer institution.

3 See social/behavioral science courses listed under General Education Electives.

4 May substitute EGR 295. Consult the requirements of the transfer institution.

5 ENG 125 is a preferred course if transferring to George Mason University. Students considering transfer should consult an academic advisor to select the appropriate course.

6Engineering/Technical Electives should be chosen carefully in conjunction with an advisor. Use the following table as a guideline. Consult the requirements of the transfer institution.

The following courses are not required for the A.S. degree. However, completion of them in addition to the degree requirements listed may be desirable for transfer as a junior in engineering. Consult the requirements of the transfer institution.
