Ecological Engineering, Associate of Science

The Associate of Science (AS) in Ecological Engineering program will provide the first two years of the engineering core curriculum for students pursuing ecological engineering as a transfer degree. The coursework is foundational to the upper division biological and ecological engineering courses o and provides the fundamental concepts needed for success and advancement in ecological or sustainable engineering professions. Write the entry requirements for the program.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
  • Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  • Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts.
  • Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives.
  • Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
