Associate in Engineering Science (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 the 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.
