Undergraduate Catalog 2020-2021

Engineering Science (AS)

Our Associate in Science program in Engineering Science (AS in Engineering Science) is a very popular 2-year program that prepares students for the 4-year BS degrees in Engineering or is used for a basic technical education background in the technology field by our young graduates. Students may choose either the Electrical or Mechanical Specialization.

General Education Requirements  30 credits 
Major Requirements  32-35 credits 
Total Credits Required  60*

*9 credits required for the Major also satisfy general education requirements. 

General Education Requirements

This program has a waiver to specify particular courses students must take in the areas of the General Education Requirements (Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning, Life and Physical Sciences, and Scientific World). If students take different courses in these areas, they will be certified as having completed the requirements, but it may not be possible for them to finish their degree program within the regular number of credits.

Chemistry Advisory

One-year of high school chemistry is required prior to entry into CHM 141 and CHM 121.  If you have not completed one-year of high school chemistry you will be required to complete CHM 100 and CHM 101 prior to registering for CHM 141 and CHM 121.

Mathematics Placement

Depending on mathematics placement, some students may have to complete MTH 30, and/or MTH 35 and/or MTH 123, and/or MTH 130 prior to enrolling in MTH 230/229 or MTH 231/229.
