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

Semester Sequence

This is a suggested full-time schedule for a student who has completed any developmental course work and has no transfer credits. Refer to the College catalog for specific requirements in selecting General Education courses.

Fall Semester Year 2

Spring Semester Year 2


General Education Requirements and Electives - 31 Credits

General Education Electives:

Choose courses from the list of approved General Education Courses, including one Diversity course.

  • Social and Behavioral Sciences 6 Credits.

Program Requirements and Electives - 33 Credits

Total Number of Credits Required for Degree: 64*

*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.


Program Description

The Electrical Engineering program is designed to maximize the number of credits that transfer into corresponding four-year electrical 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.

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.
