The associate of science curriculum in engineering is designed for those who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree program in engineering. The student is responsible for determining transferability to the transfer institution.
All students will be required to demonstrate college readiness through assessment and/or transcript review and may be required to take placement tests in math, writing, and reading to aid in placing students in the appropriate courses. Students who do not meet required placement levels must enroll in developmental studies courses.
