The Engineering Emphasis Associate of Science provides core science, engineering, and general education courses needed for most engineering majors. Students earning an engineering degree choose from among the many branches of engineering available, such as civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical, computer, and energy systems engineering. Some engineering majors and branches may require additional courses not offered at Central Oregon Community College.
Statewide General Education Student Learning Outcomes
While this program has no formal entrance requirements, individual courses may have prerequisites which must be met before enrollment.
Most engineering majors have few if any true electives, and students must sequence courses intentionally. The elective category should be used to tailor the program to a specific engineering major or branch. General guidelines follow; students are recommended to research requirements directly.
Chemical: CH 223 General Chemistry III and MTH 253 Calculus III. Note that Oregon State University requires a year-long sequence before the junior year that COCC does not offer.
Civil: ENGR 212 Dynamics
Energy Systems Engineering: BA 217 Accounting Fundamentals, CS 161 Computer Science I, EC 201 Microeconomics, ENGR 202 Electrical Fundamentals II, ENGR 212 Dynamics, MTH 253 Calculus III
- Academic Requirements:
- Students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA to earn a COCC certificate or degree.
- All General Education/Foundational courses must be completed with a C grade or higher.
