Associate of Science
The Associate of Science provides you with the first two years of study toward a Bachelor of Science degree at either the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU) or the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S & T). You take basic courses common to most engineering disciplines and continue your studies in specialized areas (electrical, mechanical, civil, chemical, etc.) during your remaining years at either MU or Missouri S & T.
Since the Associate of Science degree is designed for the pre-engineering student who plans to transfer to MU or Missouri S & T, the curriculum responds to the expectations of each institution, as outlined in the Engineering Transfer Program Guide developed in cooperation with MU and the Coordinating Board for Higher Education (CBHE) and the Model Program for Engineering Transfers developed in cooperation with Missouri S & T and the Coordinating Board for Higher Education (CBHE). The programs at MU and Missouri S & T differ slightly. It is strongly suggested that if you plan to earn an Associate of Science degree, work very closely with an advisor from both MACC and the receiving school to individually plan the four-semester degree plan.
Conditions for Graduation
To meet the requirements for graduation from MACC, a student must meet the requirements of the degree and:
