Program Information

Program Requirements: This curriculum emphasizes engineering, mathematics, and the sciences. However, the curriculum also includes electives in humanities and social sciences so that the student can select the appropriate courses for his or her pre-professional program as required in the first two years of the prospective four-year college or university degree. Students should become familiar with the requirements of the major department at the contemplated transfer institutions. When students have a choice of courses, they should base their choices on the requirements of the transfer institutions. The responsibility for proper course selection rests with the student. Students who complete the program and fulfill all other graduation requirements will be awarded the associate of science degree in engineering.

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering at most four-year institutions will require specific engineering and technical electives at the freshman and sophomore level.  Students should consult with a Transfer Advisor as soon as possible to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the engineering program at their intended transfer college or university.

Students considering a BS in Computer Science or Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, UVA, VCU, or ODU should follow the Engineering AS degree curriculum.  Students intending to transfer to JMU, CNU, GMU, Longwood, Radford, or UMW should follow the Computer Science AS degree curriculum.

Graduation Requirement: Students entering all transfer degree programs are required to take one Writing Intensive Course (WIC), which has a prerequisite of ENG 111 and ENG 112, in order to graduate. Approved Writing Intensive Courses are specified with a "WI" section designation.

Electives

  • List of courses that fulfill the requirement for Humanities Elective and Social Science Elective can be found in the Engineering Degree Requirements.
  • To meet the Humanities Elective requirement for this program, no more than one introductory foreign language course (101 or 102 level) may be used.
  • Engineering Elective:  Students must choose from the list of 200-level EGR courses.  Students are advised to consult with the intended transfer institution before choosing the Engineering Elective.
  • Technical Elective:  Approved Technical Electives are:  CHM 112 College Chemistry II, CSC 201 Computer Science I, or MTH 267 Differential Equations.  Students are advised to check with the intended transfer institution before choosing the Technical Elective.
  • The Bachelor of Science degree in engineering at most four-year institutions will require specific engineering and technical electives at the freshman and sophomore level.  Students should consult with the engineering program liaison or engineering advisor at the earliest possible date to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the engineering program of the intended transfer college or university.  Student choice should be based on the requirements of four-year college or university to which student plans on transferring.
