Engineering, A.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The various fields in engineering are related in that they all require a thorough understanding of basic scientific laws. Engineers apply scientific knowledge and principles to the design and operation of machines, to the selection of materials, to the environmental betterment of humankind, and to the economical use of personnel, money, and energy.

The Associate of Science in Engineering degree emphasizes the traditional core of engineering at the freshman and sophomore level. The program provides basic education in engineering with sufficient flexibility to allow students to transfer to a variety of four-year schools offering bachelor of science degrees in engineering. Students must successfully complete core courses with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements. Students planning to transfer to a four-year program may need to have additional hours beyond the program requirements at Northwest College in order to transfer in as a junior.

These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.
