Associate of Science in 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 degree map below provides options for general engineering or specialization in Civil, Mechanical or Electrical Engineering. 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.

Use this Program Map as an advising guide to choose courses with your advisor and track progress toward milestones and completion of degree.
