The Associate of Science in Engineering Studies degree is designed to provide students with a two-year degree, preparing them to transfer to a 4-year degree in Engineering at another institution or to find employment in an engineering industry. The program prepares students to continue their studies in areas such as aerospace engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, and mechanical engineering. Students can also transfer their course work to alternative fields such as biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, and materials science and engineering.

Student Learning Outcomes:

Students will be able to:

  1. demonstrate understanding of fundamental sciences through application to problem solving and experimental laboratory analysis.
  2. demonstrate understanding of mathematics through application to mathematical analysis and problem solving.
  3. apply scientific and mathematical principles to solve engineering problems.
  4. demonstrate the effective use of computers through application packages, programming, scientific calculations, and graphical applications.
