Pre-Engineering Associate of Science Degree
The Pre-Engineering program endeavors to equip students with necessary skills in Math, Physics, Chemistry, Computer-aided Design, and lower division engineering courses, which will insure their success in the pursuit of advanced engineering degrees.
Associate of Science Degree
The Pre-Engineering Program provides the Technical, Mathematics, Science, and General Education courses required in the first two (2) years of most university four-year engineering programs. The Associate of Science Degree in Pre-Engineering is a program of study requiring a suggested minimum of five (5) trimesters to satisfy the requirements of the program. The technical course requirements of 22 credit hours are computer-aided drafting and lower-level general engineering theory and lab courses designed to introduce students to various engineering disciplines and to prepare students to transfer to a four-year institution. Most courses are fully transferable for those students wishing to pursue four-year baccalaureate engineering degrees at a university.Pre-Engineering Associate of Science (A.S.) Degree Outcomes:
Computer-Aided Drafting and Design Certificate
The Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) Certificate program is intended to provide students with a variety of skills while enabling them to transition from the Developmental Education Program into the Pre-Engineering Associate of Science degree program or into another technical program.
The Computer Aided Drafting and Design Certification Program endeavors to equip students with necessary skills in: Math; English; Technical & Engineering Drawings; Computer Aided Design (CAD); and Mechanical, Architectural and Electrical Drawing Applications. These skills prepare students to apply the foundations and skills of this discipline to develop detailed CAD drawings by using existing technology and software knowledgeably, confidently, and effectively. Certificate of Completion The Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) Certificate program is intended to provide students with marketable skills in approximately three (3) trimesters. There is an on-going industry demand for individuals certified in computer aided drafting or design. Industry trends indicate that CADD Certification can lead to well-paying immediate full-time or part-time employment, allowing one to concurrently pursue a two-year or four-year degree. Students can follow the CADD program of study as they are transitioning from the Developmental Education Program into the Pre-Engineering Associate of Science Degree program or into a technical program such as Electronics Technology, Manufacturing Technology, Geospatial Information Technology, or Network Management.Computer Aided Drafting and Design Outcomes:
