Associate in Engineering Science

If you have always wanted to be an engineer, now’s your time. Are you strong in math and science? Even more reason to come on board.

L&C’s pre-engineering program positions you for entry as a junior into a four-year college or university. At L&C, you can major in a variety of engineering areas: chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial/manufacturing, mechanical and general.

For other engineering majors - for example, aeronautical, agricultural, and nuclear - you can work closely with the transfer institution and your adviser to select appropriate courses.

Regardless of your interest area, L&C’s program is specifically designed for completion of your baccalaureate degree at a senior institution. Plan with your adviser no later than the start of your second year at L&C to make sure you meet the general education and engineering requirements of your transfer institution.

Move forward and help build the nation and the world.
