Engineering Emphasis - Associate of Science (AS)

Description

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.

Advising Notes

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
