The Associate in Science Transfer (AS-T) degree is designed to prepare students entrance into a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program in Aeronautical, Civil, Industrial, Materials Science or Mechanical 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, Law, Business and Education.


Aeronautical, Civil, Industrial, Materials Science and Mechanical Engineering — What is it?
Engineers design, test, analyze and inspect new products and systems. The types of products vary by industry and engineering specialty. For example, Aeronautical Engineers design aircraft, satellites, and spacecraft, while Civil Engineers design roads, bridges, and tunnels; Mechanical Engineers design mechanical parts and systems; Industrial Engineers oversee production to effectively manage people and equipment; and Materials Science Engineers work with metals, ceramics, plastics and semi-conductors to develop new materials.

Areas of Study in Engineering:

Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, Thermodynamics, Mechanics of Materials, Statics, Dynamics, Project Design, Computer Aided Design, Electronic Circuits, Manufacturing Processes, Project Management, Product Safety, Quality Control and Professional Ethics.


Career Opportunities —What can I do with a Bachelor’s Degree inEngineering?
In addition to technical, scientific and problem solving skills, engineers rely heavily on teamwork and strong communication skills to manage projects effectively. These skills apply to a wide range of careers in areas such as research and development, project design, project management, teaching, sales and consulting.

Potential employers include:

Engineering Firms, Aerospace and Manufacturing Firms, Navigation Firms, Government Agencies, Colleges and Universities and Consulting Firms. For more, please visit Career Counseling.


Transfer Possibilities — Where can I transfer?
An Associate Degree from Shoreline  makes it possible for students to transfer to public and private colleges and universities throughout the U.S. with junior standing. Shoreline also has agreements with several universities to make transferring even easier. Please visit our transfer agreements page for a list of those options.  For transfer within Washington State, we offer a special degree called the AA-DTA. For international students, Shoreline also has conditional admission agreements that allow a student to be simultaneously accepted by Shoreline and a university of the student's choosing.
