The Engineering Transfer degree will provide students with a solid foundation in engineering concepts while also allowing them to develop the strong mathematical skills required for further study in the field. Students will have available to them an array of courses that will allow them to develop strengths in their chosen area of concentration. These include courses in mechanical, electrical, civil and chemical engineering. Students completing the degree will be well prepared to transfer to a four-year program in engineering at a college or university.
- Estimated Length of Program: 2 years
- Credential Awarded: Associate in Science in Engineering and Science Transfer
By choosing the appropriate math, science, and engineering electives in the 3rd and 4th semesters, a student can major in Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Industrial or Mechanical Engineering. See see suggested course of studies for ENGR programs. .
All engineering majors have a common first year curriculum. The following pages list the typical second year curriculum for each specialized engineering field. By careful selection of engineering, mathematics, and science electives during a student's second year, with the assistance of his/her advisor, the student can be prepared to transfer to almost any college or university in the country. Most four year engineering schools have a "General Education" component that requires a broad and diverse selection of social science and humanities electives. It is recommended that students select SOC-101 - Introduction to Sociology, ECN-101 - Introduction to Macroeconomics, and HIS-100 - Survey of Early Western Civilization, while at STCC.
Upon the successful completion of requirements for this program, the degree of Associate in Science in Engineering and Science Transfer will be awarded.
