Engineering Transfer Program

Award: Associate of Sciences degree, A. S.
(code AS.EGR.EGR)

Purpose: To earn the first two years of a four-year engineering degree. Engineers design, analyze, build and test technological hardware, such as electronic systems and computers, automobiles and aircraft, communication equipment, roads and bridges. An engineering degree requires at least four years of college. The first 2 years include "foundation courses" such as math, physics and chemistry, as well as some engineering basics courses. Major branches of engineering are electrical, mechanical, civil and chemical. If possible, decide which branch to pursue by the second term as it might affect elective choices. Requirements of your transfer college may affect elective choices. An engineering college program is rigorous, using advanced mathematics and physics to design and analyze hardware and processes. If more interested in a practical "hands-on" program, consider the two-year Electronics Technology Program.

Students planning to attend the University of Maryland College Park in electrical engineering should take EGR 244, EGR 235 and PHY 213 in that order, for their technical electives. Students planning to attend the University of Maryland College Park in mechanical or civil engineering should take EGR 209, EGR 222 and PHY 213 in that order, for their technical electives. In addition, mechanical and civil engineering students are encouraged to take EGR 211, and electrical engineering students are encouraged to take EGR 141, although these courses are not required for the A.S. degree.
