Engineering w/ AOCs in Aerospace, Chemical, Computer Engineering; and Engineering Science Program Description
The Associate of Science degree in Engineering is designed for students to earn the first two years of an engineering degree and transfer to a four-year engineering program.  This supports the College’s mission which includes “transfer programs to meet the economic development of the country and surrounding region.”  The program provides the necessary general education and foundation courses in math, physics, and chemistry, as well as some basic engineering courses.  The areas of concentration in aerospace, chemical, and computer engineering; and engineering sciences (consisting of 18-20 credits) permit students to further refine their studies.
