Associate in Engineering Science
The Associate in Engineering Science Degree provides students with the first two years of study toward a baccalaureate degree in engineering for transfer to a four-year college or university. As part of the AES degree, students take fundamental courses common to most engineering disciplines and continue their studies in specialized areas (mechanica/civil or electrical) after transferring. To complete the AES in two years, the calculus sequence (starting with MAT 220) should begin in the first semester. Students should be aware that the AES may take more than two years to complete if they find themselves unprepared for MAT 220. AES students may need to complete their general education requirements after transferring to a four-year college or university.
Transfer admission is competitive. Completion does not guarantee admission to a baccalaureate program or to upper division or specialty engineering courses. In some colleges and universities, a baccalaureate degree may also require competency in a foreign language.
