Upon completion of the required pattern of engineering courses and other degree graduation requirements an Associate of Science Degree in Engineering will be granted. A certificate program is also offered in engineering.


The Engineering Program allows the student to fulfill the lower division engineering requirements for transfer programs to four-year institutions as well as acquire the necessary skills for employment in engineering.

Award Type Units

*and courses to meet graduation requirements, general education and electives as needed to meet the minimum of 60 units required for the degree.

Career Options

Most careers in engineering require education beyond the associate degree and some require a graduate degree. Career opportunities include Mechanical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Bioengineering, Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Engineering Physics, Chemical Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering.

Transfer Information

Students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university should complete courses required for the university major and the general education pattern required by that transfer institution. See catalog TRANSFER INFORMATION section. Additional courses may be required to meet university lower-division requirements.

Course requirements at the transfer institution are subject to change and may be verified by a counselor or by consulting the current university catalog. Many Baccalaureate in Arts degrees require third semester competency in a foreign language. Consult the current catalog of the transfer institution and consult with a counselor.
