Thank you for your interest in the Engineering and Industrial Technologies division. In today’s world, almost all of us need to have a career. Careers in engineering and industrial technologies (E&IT) are rewarding and exciting. Transfer to a bachelor level engineering or engineering technology program at a four year school or university can be done in two ways. AAS engineering technology programs with the right selection of electives and some additional credits are transferable to four year Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technologies programs. An Associates in Engineering (AE) degree has been approved by the NCCCS and the Board of the University System that allows students to transfer into Bachelor of Science engineering degree programs at the university level. Most universities will grant 64 SHC for completion of the AE program.
