Computer Engineering

Location(s): Catonsville, Dundalk, Essex

Important Information

Short Description

Engineers make the world a better place by creating new innovations through the application of scientific and mathematical knowledge. Engineering is an exciting career that incorporates design work as well as applications. Engineers are problem solvers and follow diverse career paths. Whatever your interest is, there is probably an engineering field that encompasses it. As engineers are in demand, their starting salaries are often among the highest paid to college graduates.

Type of Credential

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 .

Semester 3

Semester 4

Courses Needed for This Program*

General Education Requirements and Electives - 31 Credits

General Education Electives:

Choose courses from the list of approved General Education Courses , including one Diversity course (marked with an asterisk *). If you want to take a Diversity class that is not in Social and Behavioral Sciences, you can fulfill the two requirements separately, but it would mean taking an additional course.

  • Social and Behavioral Sciences 6 Credit(s).

Program Requirements and Electives - 33 Credits

Total Number of Credits Required for Degree: 65*


*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed transferable college credits from other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101 - Academic Development: Transitioning to College . This 1-credit course is designed to be taken in the first semester at CCBC. Students must provide an official transcript(s) from an accredited institution to document successful completion of college coursework for the ACDV 101 requirement to be waived.

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.

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.
