Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program, Degree and Certificate List by Degree Type

This degree program is designed to provide students with engineering courses which are equivalent to those offered during the first 2 years of standard university bachelor’s program. The degree structure and course listings have been designed to provide access to ten engineering courses which are typically encountered by students across all major engineering disciplines. The degree’s flexible structure will offer transfer students a clear pathway to university degree programs while giving career education students an opportunity to transition towards an engineering degree at any point in their educational career. Courses in the degree articulate to the University of California and California State University systems. The degree contains classes covering computer programming, statics, dynamics, materials science, network analysis, problem-solving with MATLAB, thermodynamics, and computer-aided design. Courses within the degree contain valuable laboratory driven content, which maintains a focus on the design, build, and test aspects of real-world engineering. This degree is part of the Engineering Academy with UC Irvine School of Engineering for the following majors: Aerospace, Biomedical, Biomedical Premed, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Materials Science and Mechanical.
