Pre-Engineering Transfer Program A.S.

Degree Name: Pre-Engineering Transfer Program A.S.
Degree or Program: Engineering
Degree Type: Associate of Science Degree

Students wanting to complete an Associate of Science Degree must follow one of the programs outlined in the SCC/Missouri University of Science and Technology "Model Program for Engineering Transfers" or SCC/University of Missouri-Columbia "Engineering Transfer Program." Should you experience difficulty transferring your SCC coursework to another institution, contact the vice president for academic and student affairs for assistance with an appeal to the receiving institution.

Transfer Guides Available: Determination of specific courses should be based on the individual engineering area desired (electrical, mechanical, civil, etc.) and the school to which you plan to transfer. Transfer Guides are available for Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, Missouri University of Science and Technology, UM-Columbia, UM-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Engineering Program and Washington University. Classes appearing in bold below are standard classes for most engineering degrees at most schools of engineering.

+ Humanities/Social Science Electives – Typical social science courses include history, political science, sociology, psychology and economics. Humanities courses typically include literature, philosophy, and non-applied art, music and theater courses.  Check transfer school's requirements before choosing these courses.
* The Academic Skills Assessment or appropriate ACT scores are required before enrolling in math or English classes.
** Check with transfer institution to see if this course is required for engineering area desired.
