Technical Engineering Transfer - TECH.AS

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

The Technical Engineering Option is a general technology program. It is for students who do not want to major in any specific technology but want a broad background. If, after spending one year in this option, a student becomes interested in a specific technology, it is possible for him to transfer to that technology.

This program is also designed to interface with both the Engineering Transfer Program and the Pre-Engineering Option (Level 2) of the General Studies Program. A student, after spending one year in either of these programs, may transfer to the Technical Engineering option with no loss of credit.

A student who completes the entire Technical Engineering option is awarded the Associate in Science Degree in Engineering and Science Transfer.

Applying to this program

In order to be admitted to any Engineering and Science Transfer degree option a student should have completed two years of algebra, one year of geometry, one year of trigonometry or senior math, and one year of chemistry and physics with grades of C+ or better.

Program Goals

Graduates of this program:

  1. Are qualified to transfer to a 4-year engineering or science-based curriculum.
  2. Are prepared to complete their Baccalaureate Degree in two additional years.
  3. Have developed critical thinking skills.
  4. Have developed mathematical methods of problem-solving.
  5. Can communicate effectively, both orally and in writing.
