Engineering Science, Associate in Science Degree

Florissant Valley and Meramec

This program provides students with the first two years of study toward a Bachelor of Science degree at a four-year college or university. Students take fundamental courses common to most engineering disciplines and continue their studies in specialized areas (such as electrical, mechanical, civil, chemical, aerospace and nuclear) during the remaining years at four-year colleges or universities.

STLCC works with the Missouri University of Science and Technology, University of Missouri-Columbia, Washington University, Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, UM-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Engineering Program, Parks College of St. Louis University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to facilitate the transferability of specific courses. For the most current information on transferability, please consult an academic advisor, the Engineering Department or the transfer institution’s website. This program is designed to provide the necessary flexibility to meet the technical and general education requirements indicated in the receiving institution’s transfer guidelines.
