Program Learning OutcomesCurriculum Code: ENSC-AS

     This program provides the fundamental scientific and technical preparation for students who plan to continue their studies toward a baccalaureate degree in computer engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and general engineering science at a four-year institution. Students completing this program will be awarded the Associate in Science degree. Graduates not electing to continue professional study will nevertheless be prepared for employment in industrial and scientific organizations as engineering aides, research assistants or in similar positions. Those seeking a degree in mechanical, civil or other engineering must contact the department for course substitution and scheduling of courses specific to their area of study.

Admission Procedures and Requirements

     Entering students need to have completed four years of high school math and chemistry, with physics recommended, and must have a minimum 80 high school average. Students already enrolled in college must have completed MAT125. Students are admitted on a rolling basis, fall and spring; however, students admitted in January should be aware that elective courses may be offered only once a year. Most students who meet minimum standards are accepted.

     Those accepted into this program may be eligible for a full two-year scholarship. For more information contact the NSF STEM scholarship program.
