Engineering Science, Associate in Science Degree

Engineering Science, Associate in Science Degree

Florissant Valley and Meramec

The Associate in Science degree in Engineering Science is 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 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.

The following limitations to the data apply: Information provided is based on the most recent cohorts available. Typically, most recent cohorts for wage and completion data are six years prior to the current academic year. Time to complete a program of study varies depending on the number of credit hours students earn per semester.

Interested in this program? Start the enrollment process by visiting the Apply to STLCC page.   

At the completion of the program, students are expected to:

  1. apply mathematical and scientific concepts in identifying, formulating, and solving general engineering problems.
  2. design and conduct experiments that generate data for further analysis.
  3. summarize professional and ethical responsibility in engineering.
  4. communicate the results from solving engineering problems.
  5. articulate the potential impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, technological, or social context.
  6. function effectively in diverse and multidisciplinary teams.
  7. apply real-world constraints (environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability) to engineering problems.
  8. utilize basic techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
  9. describe the importance of soft skills and life-long learning in the engineering profession.

Missouri Civics Examination.  Students entering college for the very first time in fall 2019 and who intend to complete an associate’s degree must successfully complete a civics examination. Information on who is eligible for a waiver can be found on the STLCC website.
