Engineering Associate of Science


The curriculum in the Engineering Associate of Science Degree program is designed to provide the transfer student the opportunity to achieve an associate degree. While a baccalaureate or higher degree is recommended for those considering professional careers related to engineering fields, earning the Associate Degree would demonstrate achievement and may support employment as a technician in engineering related fields. Engineering companies constantly hire technicians. Students completing the engineering Associate of Science degree are prepared to transfer into: mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, and many other engineering degrees offered at California State Universities.

Program Student Learning Outcomes


Students who complete this program will be able to:

  • Demonstrate understanding of classical mechanics (Newtonian mechanics).
  • Use Newtonian mechanics to solve structural problems in a static environment.
  • Demonstrate understanding of material properties when solving static equilibrium problems.
