The Engineering AS Degree
You can use this to:
Note: Some courses within the major may have a required prerequisite. If you feel you have equivalent knowledge and skills to those included in the prerequisite course through professional experience, licensure, or certification, you have the opportunity to submit a Prerequisite Challenge to be reviewed by the faculty chair. For the Prerequisite Challenge to be considered, you must submit documentation/verification to substantiate the basis for the challenge. Please consult a counselor for more information regarding Prerequisite Challenge.
Complete all of the following courses:
Prerequisite: MATH C141, MATH C142
This course provides an introduction to the profession of engineering and its connection with society today and in the future. The development of basic engineering skills for future success in the field is emphasized. Engineering disciplines, functions, and employment opportunities are considered. Application of the engineering problem solving method, teamwork, and the design process are practiced. Typical engineering problems are solved aided by use of computer software.
