Associate of Science in Engineering (A.S.E.)

General Education - 34 Credits

General Education Electives

(Choose courses in each category from the list of approved General Education courses.

  is recommended as it is a pre-requisite for  . One 3-credit General Education course must be a Diversity course.)

  • Information Technology, Arts and Humanities, or Wellness and Health 3 Credits
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences (from two different disciplines) 6 Credits

Total Number of Credits Required for Degree: 67*

*If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed transferable college credit(s) at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree by 1 credit. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be able to:

  1. gain admission to a four-year computer engineering program with junior status;
  2. participate as an active member of an engineering design team;
  3. solve problems using data, analysis, interpretation and reasoning skills;
  4. write and present reports on results of tests and/or mathematical analyses;
  5. think critically;
  6. speak and write effectively;
  7. utilize appropriate test equipment; and
  8. apply relevant technologies.

Program Description

The Computer Engineering program is designed to maximize the number of credits that transfer into corresponding four-year computer engineering programs and to ensure that transferring students have a strong foundation to succeed in the four-year programs.  The A.S.E. is different than an A.S. in Engineering in that a graduate with the A.S.E. degree who is accepted into a parallel four-year program can transfer the degree as a block rather than on a course-by-course basis.  To graduate with an A.S.E., students must earn at least a 2.0 in all courses in engineering, computer science, mathematics, and natural and physical sciences required for the degree (i.e., chemistry and physics).  The degree will transfer to both public and participating independent engineering programs in the state of Maryland.
