Associate of Science Degree - Area of Emphasis: Pre-Engineering
Area of Study: Pre-engineering
Degree/Certificate: Associate of Science Degree
The Associate of Science degree with an emphasis in Pre-engineering is designed for the student who knows he or she wants to transfer to a four year school and complete a bachelor’s degree in Engineering after finishing the Associate of Science degree at Tri-C.
This program has been reviewed with several northeast Ohio schools to make sure the course requirements will be accepted at the transfer school. As a result, students should be taking courses with the confidence in knowing they are headed toward their degree goals in an efficient and suitable manner.
This two year program is appropriate for a student interested in completing a four year degree in any of the key areas of Engineering including, but not limited to:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Computer Science
- Electrical Engineering
- Environmental Science
- Industrial Engineering
- Materials Science
- Mechanical Engineering
It should be noted that students interested in transferring to a four year school to complete their bachelor’s degree should contact the transfer school as early as possible in their academic program to insure they are taking the most appropriate courses for that institution. This program does not require a student to go on and complete a four year degree. If a student stops after this degree program, he or she will still have an Associate of Science degree. It is, however, an excellent and efficient way for a student to use Tri-C as a stepping stone on the path to completing a four year engineering degree.
