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 engineers have training in electronic engineering, software design, and hardware-software integration instead of only software engineering or electronic engineering. Students interested in this curriculum, however, are advised to check the requirements of the institution to which they intend to transfer.

A grade of "C" or better is required in all computer science, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and physics courses.

A graduate should be able to

  1. 1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and technology to identify and solve engineering problems, both individually and in groups.
  2. 2. Design and test a system, component, or process to meet specified needs within constraints.
  3. 3. Communicate effectively via oral, hand-written, and electronic modes, including technical presentations.
  4. 4. Utilize modern engineering techniques, skills, and tools, with an emphasis on the role that computers play in solving engineering problems.
  5. 5. Understand and apply the professional and ethical obligations of the engineering profession in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
