Program Director: Tricia Crossett · Phone: 410-386-8529 · Email: tcrossett@carrollcc.edu

The purpose of the Associate of Science in Engineering (A.S.E.) Electrical Engineering program is to prepare students for a seamless transfer to a participating Maryland state or private college to complete a baccalaureate degree in electrical engineering. Students acquire a solid foundation in mathematics, science, and basic electrical engineering knowledge while developing their ability to think critically and solve problems.

Degree Requirements


Associate of Science in Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Degree
Recommended Course Sequence: 63 Credits

Program Goals


Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate relevant foundational knowledge in mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. Use foundational knowledge to evaluate and develop solutions to electrical engineering systems.
  3. Collaborate with others on a team to complete projects and engage in problem solving.
  4. Explain the professional and ethical obligations of engineers to employers and society. 

Student Notices


To receive the degree, students must earn a minimum grade of C in all engineering, mathematics, computer, and science courses. The receiving four-year institution is not required to accept credits awarded by Carroll Community College via AP, IB, CLEP and transfer (including transcripted credit), if they do not do so for their own native students. This may result in a reduction in the number of credits transferable and the requirement to re-earn those credits. Students are urged to discuss any such circumstances with an academic advisor prior to scheduling their first term courses.

Students must meet all admission requirements of the participating four-year institution to which they intend to transfer. Upon acceptance, credits earned for the Associate of Science in Engineering will transfer as a block, without review of individual courses and the transferring student will enter the receiving institution as a junior.

Students transferring to UMCP must complete CHEM 134  (offered winter term only) or CHEM 106  (prerequisite CHEM 105 ).

Diversity requirement: select a diversity-designated Arts and Humanities General Education  course. 

Disclosure Regarding Programs for Professional Licensure or Certification

Some programs at Carroll Community College (CCC) are designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional licensure or certification that is required for employment in an occupation.

If you are an out-of-state student seeking professional licensure in a state other than Maryland and you are taking a course or program leading to professional licensure or certification, CCC currently does not guarantee that the course or program meets requirements for professional licensure or certification anywhere other than Maryland. We encourage all students, especially out-of-state students, to contact the appropriate state (or District of Columbia or U.S. territory) licensing board or agency where you intend to work to familiarize yourself with the state educational, licensing, and/or certification requirements.
