Associate in Engineering Science (320)
Engineering programs are highly structured to meet the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (A.B.E.T.) standards required for registration as a professional engineer. Community College students are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Engineering Science (A.E.S.) degree. To transfer as a junior, you must have 60 to 68 semester credits, including all of the prerequisite courses listed. You are unlikely to earn the bachelor’s degree within 2 more years after transfer if you enter with less than 60 semester credits.
Students should decide on an Engineering specialty and a preferred transfer school by the beginning of their sophomore year since course requirements vary by specialty and by transfer school.
A grade of “C” or better may be required for physics, chemistry, mathematics, and engineering science courses to transfer. A similar policy may exist for general education courses. The student is advised to check directly with his/her preferred transfer school.

Students who have already chosen the university to which they plan to transfer should consult that institution’s catalog or department advisor and an SVCC academic advisor in planning their program.

*Engineering specialty courses—See chart on the following page for specific course listings.
**If only three hours are completed in Humanities/Fine Arts, then six hours are required in Social/Behavioral Sciences and vice versa. Certain specialty areas in engineering require only three hours (1 course) from both Humanities/Fine Arts and Social/Behavioral Sciences. In turn, more credit hours are required in engineering specialty courses. Refer to AES degree chart in the SVCC catalog for specific course recommendations by specialty area. Also, see an counselor or academic advisor to complete required paperwork (substitution form) to document this combination of courses. A non-Western or minority course is recommended. If two courses are selected in a field, a two-semester sequence in the same discipline is recommended.
