Mechanical/Civil Engineering, Associate of Science
The Associate of Science (AS) in Mechanical/Civil Engineering program will provide the first two years of the engineering core curriculum for students pursuing civil or mechanical engineering as a transfer degree. The coursework is foundational to the upper division pro-schools and provides the fundamental concepts needed for success and advancement in the civil and mechanical engineering profession.
This degree satisfies the requirements for an AS degree and was designed to transfer to Oregon Institute of Technology's College of Engineering or Oregon State University's College of Engineering. Please consult your advisor for details.
Students must complete a minimum of 107 credit hours with a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or better. All courses must be completed with a grade of 'C' or better. Twenty-four (24) credits must be completed at Southwestern before the AS degree is awarded.
Courses that are developmental in nature, (designed to prepare students for college transfer courses), are not applicable to this degree.
Students must complete the graduation application process one term prior to the term of completion (e.g., spring term graduates must apply during winter term).
- Students will demonstrate the ability to solve engineering problems using a variety of mathematical and computational methods.
- Students will learn and apply the required ethics expected in a professional engineering setting.
- Students will gain fundamental understanding of engineering principles including fundamentals of equilibrium of forces, and moments, an understanding of material responses to applied and reaction loads, and fundamental electrical circuits.
- Students will demonstrate problem solving experience through various methods including use of higher level computer programming 2-D and 3-D CAD modeling.
- Students will demonstrate an ability to think critically and design feasible solutions to proposed design problems.
- Students will be able to communicate designs and results effectively.
- Students will demonstrate an ability to function in interdisciplinary teams.
Math and writing placement are unique to each student and are determined during the admissions and intake advising process. Additional math or writing courses may be required prior to taking the math or writing program requirements in this degree.
