The curriculum is designed to prepare the student to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program in engineering fields such as mechanical engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, aeronautical engineering, and naval architecture/marine engineering.

 

CIP Code: 14.0101

NOVA Code: 8310

Purpose: The curriculum is designed to prepare the student to transfer to a bachelor’s degree program in an Engineering discipline. Some of the Engineering disciplines are aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and systems engineering. It is highly recommended that students consult with an Engineering faculty advisor prior to selecting their courses to ensure maximum transferability.

Transfer Information: Students are advised to work closely with the faculty and counseling staff for program and course scheduling. Electives should be chosen carefully to meet requirements of the transfer institution. The responsibility for proper course selection rests with the student.

This program is aligned with the Transfer Virginia common curriculum.  Students are strongly encouraged to consult their academic advisor and review transfer options using the Transfer Virginia Portal, Where Can This Degree Transfer.

Recommended Preparation: High school courses: 4 units of English, 2 units of algebra, 1 unit of geometry, 1 unit of trigonometry, 1 unit of laboratory science (chemistry or physics).

Completion Requirements: Grades of “C” and above are required in courses intended to be transferred for credit to a baccalaureate degree-granting college/university.

Two Years


Total credits for the A.S. Degree in Engineering: 65-70 credits


Plan to take two courses out of these three (CHM 111  , PHY 241 PHY 242 ). For most engineering disciplines, all three are required. The third science will be taken as part of the Engineering/Technical Electives.  If your engineering discipline does not require CHM 111 , then take PHY 241  in the second semester.  Electives should be selected with advice of a counselor or academic advisor to meet requirements of the transfer institution.

2 See humanities/fine arts courses listed under General Education Electives . Students must choose courses from two of the three areas listed. Credit will not be applied if student takes two courses from the same area. Electives should be selected with advice of a counselor or academic advisor to meet requirements of the transfer institution.

There should be 22 to 26 credits of Engineering/Technical electives which results in six or seven classes.  These Engineering/Technical Electives should be chosen carefully in conjunction with an advisor. Consult the requirements of the transfer institution. Engineering/Technical Electives: BIO 101 BIO 206 CHM 111  CHM 112 CHM 241 CHM 242,   CHM 245 CHM 246 CIV 240 ,CIV 225 CIV 226 CIV 280 CSC 221 CSC 222 CSC 223 CST 100 , CST 110 EGR 122 EGR 125 ,  EGR 206 EGR 240 EGR 245 EGR 246 EGR 248 , EGR 270 EGR 271 EGR 272 EGR 280 EGR 282 GOL 105 MTH 265 MTH 266 MTH 288 PHY 242 PHY 243 

4 Select any HIS course listed under the social/behavioral science courses in General Education Electives . Elective should be selected with advice of a counselor or faculty advisor to meet the requirements of the transfer institution.

Math course should be chosen based on engineering discipline and transfer institution.  For most engineering disciplines, more than one course will be required. MTH 283  may be substituted as Engineering/Technical Elective. Please contact a faculty or academic advisor to request a course substitute.  The additional math courses needed will fall under the Engineering/Technical Elective. Electives should be selected with advice of a counselor or academic advisor to meet requirements of the transfer institution.

Select any course listed under footnote #3. This elective is not needed if selections for all other requirements total 65 credits or more.
