Transfer Degrees

The Engineering department is proud to offer the Associate of Science (A.S.) and Associate of Science in Engineering (A.S.E.). As an additional transfer option, AACC has the unique Transfer Studies degree. All of these degrees will prepare you to transfer to a four-year institution. Whichever path you choose, we strongly encourage you to meet with an advisor to structure your AACC studies to meet your specific transfer goals.

Electrical Engineering, A.S.E.

This program transfers as a degree to a four-year electrical engineering program in Maryland. Electrical engineers design, analyze, build and test electronic systems, computers, communication equipment, robotic systems and other circuits. You’ll take foundational courses in math, physics and chemistry, as well as basic engineering work to make sure you are well prepared for the transition.


Engineering Transfer, A.S.

You’ll take foundational courses in math, physics and chemistry, as well as basic engineering work. By the time you complete the program, you will be well prepared to transfer to any of the best university engineering programs across the country.


Transfer Studies, A.A.

The Transfer Studies, A.A. allows you to explore different subjects or concentrate on a specific course plan that will best meet your in-state (and even some out-of-state) transfer goals. This option is particularly good if you are undecided in your ultimate career direction, not sure where you'd like to eventually transfer or just looking to complete general education requirements while "testing the waters" of a particular major. No matter what brings you to Transfer Studies, the result is a well-rounded associate degree preparing you for further studies and successful career.
