Associate of Science (Engineering)
(Effective UG21)

The Associate of Science (AS) - Engineering degree is intended for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering.  Completion of the AS degree requires a minimum of 61 credit hours of approved courses.

The AS degree differs from the Associate of Arts (AA) degree in the level of mathematics and science coursework that is required. Students meeting the prerequisites for MTH 150 (Precalculus) or MTH201 (Analytic Geometry & Calculus I) in their first semester can expect to complete the AS degree in four semesters. Students requiring additional math preparation prior to MTH150 will require additional semesters to complete the degree.

Transfer Institutions

The majority of students enrolled in our AS degree program plan to transfer to engineering programs at either Missouri S&T or the University of Missouri-Columbia. Since specific program requirements vary based on engineering discipline and transfer institution, all students are encouraged to connect with academic advisors at their intended transfer institution early in the program.

Academic Maps

The downloadable academic maps below are suggested semester-by-semester schedules of courses based upon the AS degree requirements as outlined in the academic catalog. In order for you to graduate in two years, specific milestones, courses, and other requirements (e.g. prerequisites) must be met in a timely manner. To ensure that milestone courses are completed, it is important that you, when possible and appropriate, enroll in any needed developmental coursework during the first semester(s) of enrollment. Additionally, enrolling for courses during the summer session is an option and can reduce your regular course load and allow you to stay on track to graduate in two years. Finally, keep in mind these maps do not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information.

**Shaded courses must be completed in the sequence indicated. Failure to complete these courses in the appropriate sequence will result in extension of time to complete the AS degree.

^Please refer to the college catalog and course descriptions for pre/co-requisite and placement information. You can only register for these courses if you have met the prerequisite, placed into the course and/or enroll in the co-requisite course(s).


Additional Graduation Requirement
Missouri law, included in Senate Bill 807, requires every college student pursuing an associate’s or bachelor's degree at a public institution to pass the Missouri Higher Education Civics Achievement Examination with at least a 70 percent to graduate. The rule will apply to the incoming class of first-time college students in the fall of 2019 and all students thereafter.

This academic map is not a contract, either expressed or implied, between MACC and the student, but represents a flexible program of the current curriculum which may be altered from time to time to meet the academic objectives of the college. MACC specifically reserves the right to modify, delete, or add to any academic map at any time within the student’s period of study at the college.
