The Engineering Associate in Science Degree (60 units total, 33 units in the major) is designed to lay the foundation in mathematics and physics needed for transfer to a broad range of engineering programs, while providing flexibility to tailor additional course of study to a particular 4-year degree program. Students will apply the scientific method to physics and engineering problems, as well as analyse and use basic engineering problem solving methods. See a counselor and consult www.assist.org for the complete list of courses required for your engineering field and university—the requirements typically total many more than 33 units and the general education areas are often modified.
Courses required for the associate degree major at Cerro Coso Community College may not be the same as those required for the major at a four-year school. If you plan to transfer, consult a counselor and www.assist.org to identify the courses needed from the major at your transfer school and to develop a plan that will best meet your goals.
You must complete a minimum of 60 units, including the courses listed in the major and general education requirements, with an overall GPA of 2.0 or better, and a grade of "A", "B", or "C" in all courses for the major. A minimum of 12 units must be completed at Cerro Coso Community College.
Your transfer institution may require some of the courses to be taken for a grade. Please consult a counselor and www.assist.org to determine any limitations on Pass/No Pass grading in major preparation courses.
Completion of the Cerro Coso local General Education Pattern DOES NOT prepare a student for transfer. If you are planning to transfer to a four-year school, depending on your transfer goal, you should select Option B or C only. For more information refer to the general education section of the catalog.
Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be able 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.
