Engineering

Associate in Science

Mechanical engineers apply the fundamental principles of motion and energy to serve the needs of people through the creative problem-solving process known as engineering design. These principles are represented in the subjects of solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, mechanical systems, and material science.

Civil engineers have a broad understanding of the physical factors involved in the planning, design, and operation of public and private facilities.

Environmental engineers have a broad understanding of the engineering and scientific principles to analyze, design, and manage environmental systems, including water supplies, wastewater treatment facilities, air pollution control systems, surface and groundwater resources, and landfills.

Electrical Engineers have a broad understanding of computers, control systems, electromagnetics, electronics, materials processing, power, signals, solid state, and biomedical engineering. Engineer’s places emphasis on the fundamentals of science and mathematics and their application to the solution of contemporary problems that are within the purview of professional electrical engineers.

Biosystems engineers design solutions to technical problems that involve a critical biological component. They apply quantitative skills to create products, processes, and systems that improve human existence. Working at the interface of engineering and biology, biosystems engineers are engaged in the most important challenges of our time.

Chemical engineers convert raw materials to finished products via pathways involving chemical and physical changes. The principles of mass, energy, and momentum conservation, chemical reactions, thermodynamics, and economics are applied to develop new products and to design and operate manufacturing facilities to produce products that benefit society.

Computer engineers are concerned with the organization and design of computers and computer systems. The study of computer hardware and software, and their integration and application, is emphasized.

Materials Science Engineers learn to select and create materials used to realize engineering designs in fields such as bioengineering, microelectronics and aerospace. They also learn how to manipulate the elements of matter into the atomic arrangements that insure efficient and cost-effective materials performance, demanded by today’s advanced applications.

Program Information

Students should look for an ABET accredited 4-year college or university upon transferring.

Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET): Responsible for accrediting engineering degree programs, this organization works to ensure the quality of engineering education. They also work to facilitate innovation in engineering through consulting with educational institutions and communicating with the public. The ABET’s work in promoting only the finest engineering programs helps engineers narrow the choice among accredited schools.

Degree Pathway starting with MATH-145

If you do not place into MATH-170 (Analytic Geometry and Calculus I), please consult this course pathway which begins with MATH-145 (Pre-Calculus) and consult with a faculty member or academic adviser.
