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.
