The ASE was developed to help ease
students’ transfer from two-year to four-year engineering
programs and to help expand the pipeline into engineering
careers. It is a transfer-oriented degree built around an
outcomes-based statewide agreement (see outcomes below).
Two ASE agreements based on critical outcomes have been
developed: Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering.

construction), click here.
degree is designed to transfer as a degree, rather than on a
course-by-course basis, into parallel four-year engineering
programs in Maryland. The ASE does not guarantee admission
into a four-year engineering program, however. Four-year
institutions that have parallel programs for EE or CE or both
and that have expressed support for the ASE are Capitol College;
Frostburg State University; the Johns Hopkins University; Loyola
University Maryland (Loyola only: technical credit block
transfer but not general education block transfer); Morgan State University; the University of
Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC); the University of
Maryland, College Park (UMCP); and and the University of Maryland Eastern
Shore (UMES). If you

Guide is in being developed to help implement programs.
The Guide includes information on articulation review, a
collegial faculty review of content that is conducted by the
faculty discipline group in the course of program development.
The completed Guide will be posted here after it has been
reviewed by the ASE working groups.
