Associate of Science Degree

Purpose: The associate of science curriculum in engineering is designed for those who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree program in engineering.

Admission Requirement: Admission to the College. There are no additional admission requirements for this program.

Program Requirements: This curriculum emphasizes engineering, mathematics, and the sciences. However, the curriculum also includes electives in humanities and social sciences so that the student can select the appropriate courses for his or her pre-professional program as required in the first two years of the prospective four-year college or university degree. Students should become familiar with the requirements of the major department at the contemplated transfer institutions. When students have a choice of courses, they should base their choices on the requirements of the transfer institutions. The responsibility for proper course selection rests with the student. Students who complete the program and fulfill all other graduation requirements will be awarded the associate of science degree in engineering.

Graduation Requirement: Students must take one Writing Intensive Course (WIC) which has a prerequisite of ENG 111 and ENG 112.

The Bachelor of Science degree in engineering at most four year institutions will require specific engineering and technical electives at the freshman and sophomore level . Students should consult with the engineering program liaison or engineering advisor at the earliest possible date to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the engineering program of the intended transfer institution. Student choice should be based on the requirements of four year institution to which student plans on transferring.

1 To meet the humanities elective requirement for this program, no more than one introductory foreign language course (101 or 102 level) may be used.

2 Engineering Elective: Students must choose from the list of 200-level EGR courses.  Students are advised to choose from the following list of courses but should check with the intended transfer institution to ensure that the courses will transfer.

3 Technical Elective: Students are advised to choose from the following list of courses but should check with the intended transfer institution to ensure that the courses will transfer.

Although a course fulfills a requirement for a PVCC program, it is possible the course will not fulfill a requirement at a four-year institution. Students who plan to transfer need to be aware of the four-year institution’s requirements.
