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.

    “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.”

    "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.”

    “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.”

    “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.”
