Associate of Science Degree
Engineering

The Associate of Science Degree in Engineering will prepare those students interested in laying a foundation for further study and for a Bachelor’s Degree in an engineering field from a four-year college or university.

The engineering program fulfills many of the requirements and foundation courses for transfer to Baccalaureate engineering-related majors, but does not satisfy all transfer requirements for specific institutions. Students should consult a counselor for major preparation for specific universities and colleges.

Please contact the Student Success Team for this program if you have any questions.
