Engineering A.S. (EGRS)

*This is an overview of the program. The course sequencing is meant to serve as a guideline for your semester planning. Please note that the scheduling of courses, program sequencing and curriculum are subject to change.*

This pre-professional program has its foundation in mathematics and the physical and natural sciences. Upon completion of the program, the student has the option of pursuing a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, mechanical, or nuclear engineering at a four-year college or university.

Upon successful completion of this program, graduates will be able to:

  • understand concepts, physical laws, and basic principles and apply them in the solution of problems in engineering mechanics, engineering physics, and college-level chemistry.

  • have the ability to analyze a problem in a simple and logical manner.

  • have developed experimental techniques in making measurements in the laboratory, analyzing and interpreting experimental results, and determining errors in measurements and results.

  • be able to demonstrate mathematical skills to the level of a completed course sequence in calculus and analytical geometry.

  • know how to solve elementary engineering problems on the computer using the FORTRAN programming language.

  • have learned basic drafting techniques and understand industrial-type drawings.

  • understand the nature and function of engineers in their varied fields.

  • be able to communicate effectively, particularly in written laboratory reports.

  • have acquired a general education base for the social sciences and humanities.

  • have a foundation for continuing learning and the competencies necessary to solve new engineering and physical problems as they arise.
