The Associate in Science Transfer (AS-T) degree is designed to prepare students entrance into a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program in Bioengineering or Chemical Engineering. This AS-T degree is a Major Related Program detailing the required foundation courses for students to be prepared for junior standing at baccalaureate institutions. Students will be required to take additional general education courses after transfer. Engineering is also an excellent major for graduate studies in Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Law, Medicine, Business and Education.

 

Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering—What is it?
Bioengineers and Chemical Engineers integrate their knowledge of natural sciences and engineering to conduct research, design and test equipment, create new medicines and develop proceduresfor the advancement of health care, public safety, environmental protection, science and medicine.
