About the Program

The Associate in Science in Engineering is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree program in one of the following engineering fields: aerospace, biomedical, bioproducts & biosystems, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, geological, material, mechanical, and general engineering.

In the Engineering program students will:

  • Use cutting-edge digital design and 3D printing technologies to visualize and construct rockets, robots, and solar-powered cars
  • Make a difference by inventing unique solutions to everyday problems
  • Work individually and in teams to explore mechanical, electrical, chemical, and civil engineering

This program includes the courses usually required in the first two years of a baccalaureate engineering curriculum. Students are urged to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the major department in the college or university where they plan to transfer and to consult with the Century College Advising, Counseling, and Career Center for assistance in planning their program and selecting electives. Guide sheets are available in the Advising, Counseling, and Career Center for many engineering fields and transfer institutions.
