The Associate of Science degree in Engineering incorporates the essential course work for the first two years of study in any engineering field. Some of the course requirements vary within the engineering departments cooperating in this program. In such cases, students will need to consult with the advisor as to the appropriate class for a particular engineering major. Students should consult with their faculty advisor and the institution to which they intend to transfer to ensure transferability of courses.

General Education Requirements - 29 Credit Hours

CORE 42 is a statewide general education course of study intended to ensure that all graduates possess a common core of college-level skills and knowledge.
