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 Required

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. 

An Associate of Science in Engineering degree requires a minimum of 12 credits of 200-level courses.
