For those who complete secondary school, an associate’s degree is often the first step in a student’s career or education goals. This can be obtained as a terminal degree or undertaken for transfer credits to be applied towards a Bachelor of Science degree.
What is an Associate of Science in Engineering? The degree is typically a two-year course of study that includes both general prerequisites for any science degree, as well as specialized courses in various sub-disciplines of engineering, such as mechanical, software, medical technology and more. For engineering students, the degree typically requires a series of classes in math, physics, physical science, and some general requirements such as writing. Typically, these programs take between one and two years to complete and may require an internship.
Graduates of an associate’s degree program often negotiate higher wages than those without any higher education. As it also forms part of a traditional four-year curriculum, credits from many institutions may also be transferred for credit towards a four-year bachelor’s degree later.
The cost of an Associate of Science degree in engineering can vary greatly from school to school and from area to area. Students should contact the admissions office of the desired school for financial information.
Certain career paths within the broad scope of engineering are open to students who have an associate’s degree in the field. There are many in-demand careers in corporate, mechanical, and healthcare environments, such as biomedical, civil and software engineers, medical technology developers, pharmaceutical engineers and more. The vast world of engineering provides a number of opportunities in public and private hiring entities, such as government agencies, educational institutions and research centers and hospitals.
