Associate of Science (AS)
with track in Engineering Studies

The AS, Engineering Studies degree is a two-year general-purpose degree which includes the first two years of mathematics and sciences courses for science and engineering majors, and the core. It is intended to provide students with the necessary courses and education to complete an engineering program at the Georgia Institute of Technology or at another university. This degree has been created to help address a shortage of workers to fill science, engineering, computer programming, and other technology jobs not only in the United States, but especially the southeastern part of Georgia.

Career Opportunities

Students who are awarded this degree are prepared to finish their engineering degrees at the Georgia Institute of Technology. These students will also be well-prepared to transfer their credits to other institutions with engineering programs if they choose to continue their education somewhere other than Georgia Tech. Local companies such as Gulfstream, JCB, the Georgia Ports Authority, and others, continue to increase demand for students with engineering and technology backgrounds.

Program Features

This degree program prepares students for transfer with junior status to schools offering Bachelor of Science in Engineering or other science and technology based degree programs. Along with fulfilling the general core requirements, students build a solid foundation in computer programming, engineering, mathematics, and science.

Armstrong is a medium-size university where academics take the top priority. Small classes taught by dedicated professors provide an excellent academic environment. Classes for this degree are housed in the new Science Center, a state-of-the-art science facility. Students have many opportunities for internships due to the location of the university and opportunities to participate in undergraduate research projects with faculty.

Course of Study

Students will be required to complete the core. In core area A they will take Calculus I and in core area D, Calculus II. In core area D they will also be required to take a laboratory science sequence suitable for science and engineering students. Additional requirements include an Introduction to Engineering course or an Engineering Graphics course, a Computing for Engineers course or an Introduction to Programming Principles course, any engineering course numbered 2000 or higher, an additional hour of mathematics, and an additional laboratory science sequence suitable for science and engineering students.
