Engineering Science AS Degree, General Engineering Area of Concentration

Associate of Science

A general engineering major at the associate’s degree level provides solid preparation for any type of engineering degree at the bachelor’s level. And if you decide to earn a bachelor’s degree in general engineering, you will study many different fields of engineering and business. You could then go on to coordinate teams of engineers, oversee product development from invention to market, or use your engineering know-how in a non-engineering field, such as law or medicine.

Program Outcomes

Upon completion of this program a student will be able to:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve basic physics and engineering problems in the areas they choose their elective coursework
  • Make basic designs of systems in their area of choice using analytical and numerical methods
  • Use appropriate computer application software in engineering.

Program Advising 

Meet with your academic advisor regularly to make sure you are on track to graduate and/or transfer. The program advising guide outlines the degree requirements and is meant to supplement the advising process. 

Transfer Opportunities

This track will prepare students to transfer to a four-year university with a major in general engineering.  See all engineering transfer agreements.

Careers

Career possibilities include engineer, energy auditor, security management specialist, compliance manager, supply chain manager, software developer, geospatial information scientist, and technologist. Some may require a bachelor's degree.

Curriculum 

Suggested Course Sequence: General Engineering

A suggested General Engineering course sequence for full-time students follows.

All students should review the advising guide and consult an advisor. Most courses have either assessment levels that must be met or prerequisites (courses that must be taken first). Part-time students and those who need to meet assessment levels or take prerequisite courses will take longer to complete a degree. An advisor will help make sure you are taking your courses in the right order.

All degree-seeking students must take a central group of General Education courses in English, mathematics, arts, behavioral and social sciences, humanities, and science. These courses are included in the suggested course sequence below.
