Engineering Science

The A.S. in engineering science program is designed to prepare students to transfer  to a four-year college or university to earn a bachelor degree in engineering. This degree program provides appropriate preparation for continued study toward careers in mechanical, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, ceramic, aerospace, nuclear, environmental, or metallurgical engineering.

Important Points
  • Students routinely elect to take up to 70 credit hours to enhance transferability.
  • Recommended social sciences electives are ECO 2610: Macroeconomic Principles and/or ECO 2620: Microeconomic Principles.
  • Students are encouraged to consult with a discipline advisor prior to registering for any courses in engineering science.
  • It is recommended that students planning to pursue a degree in chemical engineering replace the MAT 2670 (3 hours) requirement with CHE 2530 (4 hours), choose CHE 1560 and CHE 2540 as program electives, therefore earning 70 credit hours.
