Program Description

The Associate of Science in Engineering Studies (AS) degrees is a 2-year undergraduate transfer degree program designed largely for the completion of the general education requirements and related lower division studies typically pursued during the first two years of a four-year baccalaureate degree program. Most of the coursework in this transfer AS degree programs encompasses CSU’s Core Curriculum requirements, which include some preparatory or introductory coursework for particular upper division majors.  However, these transfer associate degrees do not include in-depth studies in a particular major, as in-depth studies in a major field are typically pursued at the upper division level (last two years) of a four-year degree program.
