Associates Degree in Engineering Science
A minimum of 68 semester hours (102 quarter-hours) is required for the A.E.S. degree.
Unofficial Engineering Transfer Guides
Engineering degrees vary significantly by discipline and vary slightly between institutions for the first two years of coursework. Below are guides that provide the course flow sequence for each major and the transferability of each course to the Illinois institutions offering that major.
Unofficial Social Science/Humanities Transfer Guide
Approximately six Social Science/Humanities courses are required for the baccalaureate degree. Since only up to four can be counted toward the AES degree, the AES degree is not sufficient to fulfill your general education requirements at your transfer institution. Therefore, it is extremely important to take courses that will transfer into the correct categories at your final institution. Use this guide to help in selecting social science and humanities courses.
Foreign Language Requirements
A foreign language is required only at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). No other engineering programs in Illinois require a foreign language. The requirement at UIUC is for three years of a single foreign language in high school or the equivalent in college. Note that college credit may not be applied toward degree requirements at UIUC or COD.

“At COD, I can pace myself appropriately, and I value the quality of education over the speed at which I complete my coursework. I am grateful to professors like Dr. Richard Jarman, who show 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. It is to him that the opportunity at Northwestern was made possible.”Read Spotlight
"My time at College of DuPage has given me a solid educational foundation and only strengthened my desire to become an engineer. I learn best in a competitive environment. Professors David Smith and Scott Banjavcic have been excellent advisors as they keep pushing us to outperform ourselves. My friends and I kept challenging each other and brought out the best in ourselves. There is no dearth of opportunities at COD, and I did my best to take advantage of as many as possible.”Read Spotlight
“Since my education is most important to me, the education at COD is rigorous and enriching, which will give me the edge I need in my field. The amount of support I have found from the faculty and staff is enormous. In every department, from admissions to student life, I have seen the willingness of the staff members to help students succeed.”Read Spotlight

“Because College of DuPage is a two-year school, I get a lot more opportunities to gain hands-on experience. I was able to help design and build two robots and compete in competitions – the Jerry Sanders Creative Design Competition at UIUC, where we won an award for our robot, and the NASA Robotic Mining Competition at the Kennedy Space Center. Both competitions helped me gain real-life experience working with others and working in the manufacturing lab.”Read Spotlight
“The program challenges me in my coursework and is helping me develop a quality work ethic and study habits which will be key skills in my future. Also, Professor Scott Banjavcic has given me advice and has shared insight from his time working as a professional engineer, which has already helped and will continue to help. The facilities at COD are also great and make learning easier.”Read Spotlight
"Education is not short term for me. My major will carry me throughout College of DuPage and beyond, and I could not be happier. I know it is a big dream, but I plan to earn my way into a medical school. The odds are certainly against me, yet there would practically be no chance without College of DuPage. Ultimately, I plan to become the most distinguished person I can be in the medical community. I want education to be part of my whole life, and I want to use it to change the world for the better."Read Spotlight
