Engineering - AS

Associate in Science in Engineering

Engineers design and create the future. They use the principles of math, science, and engineering to design and build new products or to develop large-scale systems such as a transportation network or a water treatment plant. Engineering problems usually involve teams of people, so engineers must work well with others and communicate effectively.

The Associate in Science in Engineering is designed to prepare students for transfer to engineering programs at four-year universities. Upon completion of the Associate in Science in Engineering, students will possess the knowledge and skills required for upper-division coursework in Engineering.

Program Learning Outcomes
  • Students will analyze and interpret experimental results and/or data to make engineering problem decisions.
  • Students will use math, science, and engineering concepts to describe, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • Students will communicate the results of design and/or analysis orally and through text and graphics.
  • Students will work effectively in teams.
To earn this degree, students must meet the following requirements: 
  1. Completion of 60 degree applicable units with an overall GPA of 2.0.
  2. Completion of a minimum of 18 semester units in the major with a grade of C (or P) or better.
  3. Completion of the AS Graduation Requirements, CSU GE-B or IGETC.

Please note not all classes are offered each semester. For sections with honors courses, select either the honors version or the non-honors version
