Engineering

Engineering


Complete basic background studies for transfer to a bachelor's degree program in engineering disciplines, including aeronautical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, manufacturing and mechanical engineering. Careers may be found in research, development, design, operations management, teaching, sales and consulting.

Environmental Science

Environmental Science


Today's environmental problems call for people who are educated in more than one discipline, highly trained in scientific and technical skills, and aware of the ecological, political, economic, and social dimensions of environmental decisions. The Associate in Science-Transfer (AS-T) degree in Environmental Science provides a foundation in basic physical, biological, and social sciences, and also addresses the human element in environmental issues. This curriculum prepares students to transfer and complete a BS or BA in an Environmental Science field for subsequent graduate study in MS, PhD, and law degree programs and careers in government agencies or the private sector.

Strong analytical, mathematical and computer skills are a must.
