An associate's degree is a good start to your college career, and is very beneficial if you do not have a lot of time. Studying full-time will likely earn you the degree in two years, or you can take longer studying part-time while holding a job. This time can be applied toward a bachelor's degree at a later date.

So, what is an Associate of Arts in Engineering? Many of the courses for this kind of degree are chosen to specifically fulfill prerequisites for later study. That is why this course of study is designed to lay the groundwork for various other engineering programs, such as mechanical, electrical, chemical, industrial or civil engineering. You will be expected to take basic courses in the sciences and mathematics.

An associate's degree in engineering is beneficial to starting a more focused bachelor's program in engineering. The technical courses required for such a degree are also useful to creating or polishing analytical skills, which you can apply in various aspects of your life.

The cost of earning an associate's degree in engineering depends greatly on the institution. Tuition rates are often based on the number of courses taken per semester, and the number of semesters in a year also varies from place to place.

Jobs that are of an analytical, technical and manufacturing nature are the most common when you have an associate's degree in engineering. If you’re planning to continue as a civil engineer, the best jobs tend to be in environmental and hydrotechnical industries. Similarly, electrical engineering minded individuals can find jobs in electronics and aircraft equipment. This degree works for hands-on and staff positions.

If you can't take classes full-time, there are part-time options available. Your associate's will take longer, but still be just as useful and meaningful. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
