Associates Degree in Engineering Science

The Associate in Engineering Science (AES) degree is designed to be equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree in engineering. Baccalaureate degree programs in engineering are highly structured and require emphasis on mathematics, science, and engineering coursework during these years. General education courses (English, humanities, and social sciences) are typically spread out over the entire Baccalaureate degree in engineering. Thus, the AES degree does not require students to fulfill all of the general education courses in the first two years.

The AES degree was designed to be flexible enough to accommodate students who want to pursue any engineering major. Use the guides under the transfer information section for coursework selection for an individual major and university program.

    “The academic experience at COD is tough, but I enjoyed it. My teachers, and especially the engineering program, were very good. We get to design, test and manufacture the product from start to finish, which allows our engineers to learn the all the process is product development. This takes time up front but after a while, the knowledge we gain allows us to design new concepts for manufacturability, which gets us to market faster. I’m leaning more and more every day.”

    “College of DuPage taught me what to expect in the U.S. It was hard living here at first because everything was new. My professors were so friendly and good, especially Michael Stack and Caroline Soo in math. And I made so many new friends. I fell in love with College of DuPage. It’s a college of dreams and a stepping stone to a better future."

    “At COD, I paced myself appropriately, and I valued the quality of education over the speed at which I completed my coursework. I am grateful to professors like Dr. Richard Jarman, who showed real interest in the success of their students. Dr. Jarman understands the human element in education and uses his vast talents to see that his students reach their potential.”
