Associate of Science (AS)

T Transfer degrees for accepting institutions Transfer degrees for accepting institutions = Transfer degrees for accepting institutions, see


The associate of science curriculum in engineering is designed for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges or universities to complete baccalaureate degree programs in engineering. Course options exist to prepare students for majoring in mechanical, chemical, computer, and electrical engineering.

Program Requirements and Special Conditions

Students must meet JTCC admission requirements. Students must also complete placement tests (or equivalent) in English and mathematics, and scores will be used for appropriate course placement. If students have deficiencies in English and/or mathematics, JTCC offers developmental and prerequisite courses to prepare students for the curriculum. New students should see a counselor and returning students their advisor for more information.
