Associate of Science in Engineering

The Associate of Science in Engineering provides the graduate with a knowledge of cutting edge technology, enabling graduates to design and build solutions for the challenges of tomorrow.

Learning Outcomes:

Recipients of an Associate of in Engineering will be able to:

  1. apply their knowledge of math (calculus and high level algebra), science, and engineering to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems. Create sketches, diagrams, and graphs to describe and solve physical processes.
  2. formulate and perform elementary engineering calculations to aid the selection of the best design for a simple device.
  3. demonstrate professional ethical responsibility. Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
  4. communicate effectively in both oral and written formats and perform on multi- disciplinary teams.
  5. formulate a plan of study to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in engineering and describe the processes needed to become an engineer and maintain a license.

Specific Degree Information:

Students are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor concerning required courses and sequencing for this degree.

* Note since ENGR 299 or TEED 161 or ENGR 270 cannot be counted as a SSE elective, the second SSE is required for the Louisiana Tech transfer agreement.

**If you take ENGR 299 or TEED 161 or ENGR 270, you only need to take one Social/Behavioral Science to complete AS degree in Engineering from BPCC.

Students must demonstrate competency in computer literacy by successfully completing a challenge examination in ENGR 100 or through successful completion of an approved college level course satisfying BPCCs computer literacy requirement (CIS 105).

Students must also demonstrate competency in oral communication by successfully completing a challenge examination or through successful completion of a college level public speaking course (SPCH 110).
