Engineering

Program Description:  The Associate of Science degree in Engineering provides students with the general education, mathematics, and science courses normally taken in the first two years of an engineering program at a four-year college or university while providing the flexibility for individual interests. The Engineering degree is based on the 42-hour Core Curriculum, and represents the first two years of a four-year degree which vary from university to university. Students transferring should always consult with an advisor or articulation officer from their receiving institution.
