Which Engineering Degree is Right for Me?

ICC offers two options for engineering degrees. Both are equally rigorous and prepare you to transfer into a four-year college engineering program.

This course sequence, Associate in Engineering Science, is aligned with Bradley University, Missouri University of Science and Technology, and the University of Illinois at Urbana or Chicago. It also fulfills the requirements of most other universities.

If you plan to transfer to Southern Illinois University or Northern Illinois University you may prefer the Associate in Science Degree.

Foreign language is not required for graduation at ICC but may be required elsewhere. Be sure to check the requirements of the college or university you want to transfer to.

Talk to an Engineering advisor as soon as you start your program. You may be encouraged to choose one of our two programs based on where you plan to transfer.
