2020-2021 College Catalog and Student Handbook [ARCHIVED CATALOG]
PURPOSE: This two-year degree prepares students for transfer to a four-year college and major in an engineering-related program. Examples include mechanical, civil, electrical, computer, biomedical, and chemical engineering.
CREDENTIALS: An Associate of Science (AS) degree is a major related to an area such as business administration, engineering, science, and social sciences that takes 2 years for full time students to complete. Students receiving an AS degree intend to transfer to four-year colleges.
TRANSFER INFORMATION: This program is designed for transfer. Students should consult with their advisors to ensure that they select electives that best prepare them for the specific requirements of their intended transfer college or university programs of study. More information can also be found at www.jtcc.edu/academics/transfer/
PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS AND SPECIAL CONDITIONS: Please see Additional Information for Prospective Engineering Students for the Engineering Application Form and required documentation, Math Placement guidance, Engineering Preparation Pathways, and Guaranteed Transfer information.
1. Initial placement: All Engineering students will be placed initially in AS Science, but should still select Engineering on their Tyler application.
2. Automatic Engineering placement process: As soon as students are eligible to take both
MTH 263 Calculus I or higher
ENG 111 English Composition I (or ENG 111/ENF 3) or higher
they should submit the Engineering Application Form to start the automatic process to be placed in AS Engineering.
3. Students not yet ready for Engineering can complete any developmental and prerequisite courses needed to prepare for the Engineering curriculum, while in the Science major. Engineering Preparation Pathways are available. English, Humanities, Social Science, and Chemistry courses will be applicable to the Engineering major requirements.
4. Students should meet with an Advising Center advisor to determine what level math they are ready for, and may need to complete placement tests in English and Math. Visit www.jtcc.edu/placement for English placement options. Visit https://www.jtcc.edu/academics/engineering-as-math-placement for additional guidance for Engineering Math placement.
New students and returning students are strongly urged to see their Engineering/Science faculty advisor for more information.
PROGRAM OUTCOMES: By the completion of this program, students will be expected to demonstrate an intermediate level of competency in the following skills (taken from Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology ABET standards):
- Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- Apply the engineering design process to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, ethical, and economic factors.
- Effectively communicate engineering information, reflecting the engineering process and adhering to guidelines for clarity, organization, and completeness.
- Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, considering the impact of solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
- Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data using software, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

Pre-requisite and co-requisite requirements can be found in course details.
Students are strongly encouraged to complete their ENG, MTH, and SDV requirements first.
Students should regularly meet with their faculty advisor and check their advisement report by accessing the Student Information System (SIS) through the myTyler portal.
Please see an Advisor (Faculty or Advising Center) early for advice about math placement and its impact on your plan of study.
Please see your engineering Faculty Advisor early to identify which upper level Math and EGR courses are most applicable to your intended university major and to create a plan of study that accounts for prerequisites, preferred course order, and class offerings. EGR course offerings are limited in the summer. Several courses may be taken out of numerical sequence. Some courses must be taken together. Additional courses may be counted for majors such as Biomedical EGR, Chemical EGR, and Computer Science - these courses require a waiver. Please see your Engineering Faculty Advisor each semester to maintain or revise your plan.
Foreign Language: Students who did not complete foreign language in high school and need it for their university program (not common) may substitute SPA 101 or FRE 101 for CST 100 only. This requires a waiver.
