Engineering

Associate of Science

SPECIALIZATIONS:  
Mechanical/General Engineering
Chemical/Biological Engineering
Electrical/Computer Engineering

PURPOSE: The demand for technically trained people is increasing rapidly in Virginia as well as throughout the world. The engineer is a most important member of the technical team, which includes the scientist, technician, and skilled craftsman. Opportunities are unlimited for men and women in the field of engineering. Science is so diversified now that one may enter almost any specialization and find employment. The preparation for the engineering profession is based on a rigorous program, especially in mathematics and science.

The Associate of Science degree in Engineering is designed for persons who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree in one of the following engineering fields: aerospace, agriculture, architecture, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, industrial, materials, mechanical, mining, nuclear, or ocean.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS: General college curricular admission

The Mechanical/General Engineering specialization is designed for persons who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a degree in mechanical, civil, aerospace, ocean, or mining engineering. For students who do not yet know which discipline they want to pursue, this specialization provides a fundamental engineering education that will help prepare students for a future in any engineering field.

The Chemical/Biological Engineering specialization is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree in chemical, biomedical, biological, or environmental engineering.

The Electrical/Computer Engineering specialization is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a degree in electrical or computer engineering.

PROGRAM NOTES: Applicants shall have (a) completed placement testing and (b) met with their advisor to establish a planned course of study prior to being allowed to register for courses.

Satisfactory completion of the following high school units or their equivalent, at a minimum, is strongly recommended: four units of English, one unit of laboratory science (preferably physical science), one unit of social studies, and four units of mathematics (two units of algebra, one unit of plane geometry, one unit of advanced mathematics or trigonometry and solid geometry).

This program requires a steady progression through at least four high-level mathematics courses, generally taken at a rate of one per semester. MTH 263 and MTH 264 are pre- or co-requisites for several engineering courses. Applicants who place into developmental mathematics will face additional mathematics courses, which do not count toward degree progress, before even qualifying for MTH 263. Accordingly, applicants are urged to study their math thoroughly before taking the mathematics placement test to avoid having to repeat one or more mathematics courses unnecessarily.

This program includes the courses usually required in the first two years of a baccalaureate engineering curriculum. Students should consult with their engineering advisor at the earliest possible date to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the engineering program at the college or university to which transfer is planned.

COMPUTER COMPETENCY REQUIREMENT: Students in this program will meet the college’s computer competency requirement by successfully completing EGR 124.
