This associate degree curriculum provides a basic program of
engineering coursework for students planning to transfer to a university
engineering program. The program includes common lower-division
engineering courses and also the foundational science and mathematics
coursework required for most engineering majors. While the program
reflects a typical lower division university engineering curriculum, it
may not fully satisfy lower-division requirements at all engineering
university programs. Thus, students should communicate with their
desired university to determine the required coursework to transfer with
upper-division status. Transfer students are also advised to take job
skills courses to improve their employability.
Suggested job skill courses depend on major:
1.) Mechanical engineering majors – Engr 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 103, 104, 105, 130A, 130B, 125, 124, 114, and 158.
2.) Civil engineering majors – Engr 183, 184, 185, 142, 118, and 119.
3.) Electrical engineering majors – Engr 131, 133, 250, and 250L; Cmpr 120, 121.
The program may also provide the necessary background for employment as a
drafter, designer, or engineering technician. However, in these cases,
students are advised to also pursue associate degrees or certificates
in the appropriate career education areas to improve their
employability. For instance, drafter employment may require coursework, degrees/certificates in drafting, design, and CAD.
Engineering technician employment may require coursework, degrees/certificates in engineering
Students must take coursework from the block of courses below labeled
"engineering or engineering-related courses". The appropriate courses selected
are based on major:
For mechanical engineering majors: Engr 235, 240, 250, 250L, 125, 103 (or 130A)
For civil engineering majors: Engr 235, 240, 125, 183;
For electrical engineering majors: Engr 250, 250L, 183; Cmpr 120, 121
Students will be able to:
1. select and develop engineering careers
2. demonstrate aptitude in foundational math and science topics
3. solve engineering problems of common lower division engineering courses.
This program has only an ASSOCIATE DEGREE option and no certificate option.
The DEGREE also requires completion of general education coursework per Plans A, B, or C of college catalog (~ 30 units)
