The Associate of Science in Pre-Engineering degree program allows students to transfer to engineering programs offered by a baccalaureate degree-granting institution.  The program offers suggested academic pathways for nine engineering disciplines including Chemical Engineering, which studies the technology of chemical production and the manufacturing of products through chemical processes.


To receive this degree, the student must:

  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better in all credit hours that are to be used towards the degree.
  • Earn a “C” or better in approved electives, ENGL 101 and 102, and in courses that are prerequisites for other courses.
