  • Many courses are introductory treatments of mechanical and electrical applications and materials technology.
  • Skills used in analysis and communication with engineers and designers emphasized.
  • Skills needed for working with manufacturing and fabricators emphasized also.
  • Intended typically for transfer to a four year school; this is not a terminal degree.


  • This two-year program prepares students for entry into formal engineering degree programs at four-year universities.
  • The Pre-Engineering two-year program has about 20 percent general education in subjects like the humanities and social sciences.
  • The required technical courses emphasize calculus, chemistry and physics, mechanical and electrical sciences and engineering graphics.
  • The result is an associate of science degree that lays the foundation for success at a university offering a wide choice of different engineering specializations.
