About the Engineering Department
Purpose: The ASE in Electrical Engineering degree was developed to facilitate the transfer of students from two-year to four-year electrical engineering programs, and is not considered as a terminal degree in engineering. This program is designed to transfer as a degree, rather than on a course-by-course basis, into parallel four-year electrical engineering programs in Maryland. Although this does not guarantee admission into a four-year engineering program, most Maryland universities have expressed support for the ASE. To receive the block transfer benefit of this degree, all of the ASE degree requirements must be completed.
The first two years include foundation courses such as math, physics and chemistry, as well as introductory engineering courses. There are no technical electives within this program. All program requirements are mandatory.
Range of Occupations
- Leads to occupation of electrical engineer
Additional Degree Requirements
To complete the program in two years it is necessary to take calculus (MAT 191 ) in the first term. Those not ready for calculus should take pre-calculus math (MAT 151 ), possibly in the summer before the first regular term.
