Associate of Science in General Engineering (ASGE) (Fall 2014)

The Associate of Science in General Engineering degree provides the opportunity for students to develop a solid, general proficiency in engineering, mathematics, physics and computer science by providing their beginning two-to-three years of general engineering. Students who complete the two-to-three year ASGE degree program will be prepared for transfer to an ABET-accredited four-year engineering school to obtain their bachelor of science degree in an engineering discipline. Engineering as a major is a diverse and rewarding field that can open up a vast array of engineering career options including, but not limited to: aerospace, biological, biomedical, chemical, environmental, electrical, mechanical and control systems.

Engineering Articulation Program (prior to Fall 2014)

Regardless of previous academic limitations, all students are assured access to the rich and versatile profession of engineering. Although there is no guarantee of success, resources are available to optimize the student’s educational experience, professional options and lifelong learning. Students can expect to complete an engineering degree in five years or less, including a minimal of two years at the transfer engineering school. All students considering enrolling in this program engineering degree are strongly urged to contact the program coordinator and request advisement prior to enrolling or transferring to Highlands. Importantly, some engineering courses are offered once a year (alternate semesters).

It is important that students stay on schedule for efficient completion of their degree. All prerequisites are enforced. A grade of C or better is required of all courses in the major. Students with Math ACT less than 17 are required to take MATH100. Students with Math ACT 17-22 will take MATH120. Students with Math ACT 23 or above may take MATH140, 150, 160, or with approval, MATH 211. Students with English ACT less than 17 are required to take ENGL100.
