PRINT | CATALOG HOME | BACK

Program Information/Mission:

The Associate in Engineering Science program prepares students for entry into a baccalaureate level engineering program at the junior level. The suggested sequence of courses includes a minimum of 61 semester hours of mathematics, chemistry, physics, selected engineering sciences, and many general education requirements common to most engineering B.S. degree programs. (See specific graduation requirements for the Associate in Engineering Science Degree.) This sequence is articulated with Bradley University, Missouri University of Science and Technology, University of Illinois at Urbana or Chicago, and fulfills the requirements of most other universities. Students planning to attend Northern Illinois University or Southern Illinois University should meet with an advisor as early as possible.

Admission to the Program:
Students must complete the COMPASS placement tests before admission into this program. Summer sessions are necessary for most engineering students.
