Associate of Engineering

(Available Spring 2021*)

*(The Associate of Engineering degree is available Spring 2021 pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.)

The Associate of Engineering degree program is designed to prepare students with a solid foundation in engineering. It provides students with a strong curriculum that will prepare them for potential acceptance into schools of engineering and other related programs. This program incorporates four engineering tracks:  Biomedical Engineering (BE), Computer Engineering (CE), Electrical Engineering (EE), and Mechanical Engineering (ME).
