Degree: Associate in Engineering Science
Plan 12AB

This program is recommended for students pursuing a B.S. in Engineering, including any of the various engineering disciplines (e.g. mechanical, electrical, civil, aeronautical, materials, agricultural, biomedical, chemical, and computer, etc.). The program parallels the first two years of engineering programs at most universities accredited by the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Four year schools offering a B.S. in Engineering include the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), Northern Illinois University (NIU), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), Illinois Tech (IIT), Bradley, Southern Illinois University (SIU), Northwestern University, Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), Marquette, Purdue, and more. Upon completion of minimum transfer requirements (which vary by four year school), CLC Engineering students can transfer to complete their B.S degree at a four year college or university.

This program is also appropriate for students pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science with an engineering focus. Four year schools offering a B.S. in Computer Science with an engineering focus include University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign (UIUC College of Engineering), Illinois Tech (IIT), Southern Illinois University at Carbondale (SIUC) and Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville (SIUE). Students desiring a B.A. or B.S. in Computer Science with a math or liberal arts focus may want to pursue the program of study recommended under Computer Science (Associate in Science).

Since minor differences in course requirements exist at different universities and in different engineering disciplines within the same university, students are strongly advised to meet with a faculty advisor from the Engineering Department or an Academic Success Advisor, and consult the college catalog and an engineering advisor at their intended transfer institution.

^ The credit for CLC 120, College Success Seminar, is an institutional requirement for graduation. It is not part of the program requirements but must be completed with a D or better.

# Select a minimum of 12 credit hours from the technical elective courses. Courses may include those recommended in the semester schedule above or substitute in a different course.

* Select courses from three different disciplines (i.e. different prefixes). At least one course must be selected from the Social and Behavioral Sciences section and one course from either the Humanities or Fine Arts section. Include one course in International/ Multicultural Education. There will be a + following the course number. This course can fulfill both the I/M requirement and a Social Science, Humanities, or Fine Arts requirement.

For more information on recommended courses or program specific advising, contact faculty members Jan Edwards or Rob Twardock, or the Engineering, Math and Physical Sciences division at (847) 543-2044.
