Associate Degrees

A.S. in Civil Engineering

This degree provides the foundation in mathematics, science, and engineering needed to transfer to a four-year institution as a major in civil engineering. The courses in this degree meet most of the lower division requirements for several nearby universities. Since each university has its own unique requirements, additional coursework will be required prior to transfer. Students should meet with a counselor to determine which additional courses are required for successful transfer to a particular institution.
