Engineering Degree Programs

After completing an A.S. degree in Engineering, a student will be able to:

  • Identify and to solve environmental problems.
  • Apply fundamental science and engineering in an integrative fashion, to effectively work and solve problems at the interface of mathematics, science, engineering and technology
  • Demonstrate effective oral and written communication skills.
  • Apply diverse techniques, methods, and tools towards the solution of engineering problems.
  • Apply the engineering process and design driven research.
  • Conduct reliable independent work as well as teamwork experience.
  • Identify and apply ethical principles and standards.

To be awarded an A.S. degree, a student must complete:

  1. All the major requirements.
  2. Additional units to meet the college graduation requirements.

NOTE:Only CHEM 1A is required for the A.S. degree. Transfer students may need to take additional chemistry courses to complete the requirements for a B.S. degree. Please consult with a counselor to determine campus-specific requirements.

Additional math may be required.

Recommended Electives: Choose those general education requirements outside the major which may apply toward the bachelor’s degree requirements at the four-year institution where you transfer.
