How it Works

This degree program is for students majoring in engineering and planning to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree. AES students complete their general education requirements after they transfer. If you are interested in pursuing the AES degree, you should consult with an academic advisor and the transfer institution. Note that different engineering specialties require a unique set of courses.
