Associate of Science Degree

People working in the field of engineering and related technical fields bridge the gap between scientific principles and the application of these principles to the needs of society. The field is quite diversified with exciting job opportunities for people with varied mathematic, scientific, and technical skills. An engineer uses experience and judgment, as well as advanced training in engineering, science, and mathematics to formulate ideas and designs, and to determine standards, specifications, work orders and schedules so that projects can be economically beneficial to mankind. A Bachelor of Science in Engineering is required. Many engineers earn master’s or doctorate degrees.
