Associate in Science (Transfer)

Engineering is the perfect field for you if you enjoy applying your knowledge in math and science to the analysis, design, and construction of physical devices. The discipline draws on the concepts of thermodynamics, statics, mechanics, and circuits depending on the engineering specialty you choose.

Scholarships available – and one might have your name on it

You will concentrate on building a strong foundation in math and science, to meet the Associate in Science requirement. The program is designed for you to transfer for completion of a bachelor’s degree.

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 degree prepares students to transfer to Southern Illinois University or Northern Illinois University.

The course sequence for the Associate in Engineering Science degree 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.

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.
