Electrical Engineering - A.S.E. Degree (Transfer)

Application Code 257

For curriculum information, contact the Science, Engineering, and Technology Division—Room ST-248—443-518-1600.

This program is designed for students preparing to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems. Their work is the link between scientific discoveries and the commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs. Electrical engineering studies the application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism in the transmission of power and information. Students interested in this curriculum, however, are advised to check the requirements of the institution to which they intend to transfer.

General Education Core

Students enrolled in transfer patterns must take a minimum of 30 credits in General Education. Each student’s total of general education and required courses must equal at least 60 semester hours of credit.
