Engineering AS

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 may need to complete placement tests in English and mathematics. Visit for all course placement options. 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.

  1. Math Course Electives:  EGR majors are required to take a minimum of 18 credits from the Mathematics Electives List, starting their first semester, with the highest‐level class for which they are prepared. Please see below. Students are encouraged to take two math classes beyond MTH 174 Calculus II, in order to be on schedule after transfer to the university. MTH 277, MTH 279, and MTH 285 may be taken in any order.

  2. EGR Course Electives:  Students earn an AS in Engineering by taking EGR 120, EGR 126, plus 15 credits from the Engineering Electives List. Please see below. Specific sets of courses are designed to prepare students for specific majors at transfer universities. Please see your faculty advisor. The two‐course series EGR 120‐124 is required by some universities. EGR 248 may be taken out of numerical order with EGR 245 and EGR 246. EGR 270 may be taken out of numerical order with EGR 251/255 and EGR 261/263. EGR 251 and EGR 255 must be taken together. EGR 261 and EGR 263 must be taken together.

  3. Social/Behavioral Science Electives:  This requirement can be satisfied by courses with the following prefixes: ECO, GEO, PLS, HIS, PSY (except PSY 100), and SOC.

  4. Humanities Electives:  This requirement must be satisfied by completing one 3-credit conceptual humanities course that offers breadth of knowledge. Additional humanities electives may be conceptual or applied with a focus on skills, techniques and procedures. See website ( for a list of approved conceptual and applied humanities electives.
