Engineering A.S. (EGRS)  

Attention 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.
  • Analyze a problem in a simple and logical manner.
  • Developed experimental techniques in making measurements in the laboratory, analyzing and interpreting experimental results, and determining errors in measurements and results.
  • Demonstrate mathematical skills to the level of a completed course sequence in calculus and analytical geometry.
  • Solve elementary engineering problems on the computer using the C++ programming language.
  • Perform basic drafting techniques and understand industrial-type drawings.
  • Understand the nature and function of engineers in their varied fields.
  • Communicate effectively, particularly in written laboratory reports.
  • Have 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.
