Requirements for the Associate in Science
Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering
This degree program is designed to cover the
first two years of a fouryear program leading to the Bachelor’s Degree in
Electrical and Computer Engineering at most fouryear
colleges and universities. While the Bachelor’s
Degree is usually the minimum needed to practice as an
engineer, the Associate in Science Degree in Engineering will permit an
individual to find work in most engineering firms as an engineering aide.
Note that the degree requirements listed
below include an additional 12 units of General Education plus 2 classes in
Exercise Science.
Also note that students intent on entering a particular
university should make sure they have fulfilled the transfer requirements for
that university. In particular, students intent on entering SDSU should
plan on additional General Education courses over and above what are required
for the AS degree.
