The engineering department offerings include general transfer courses appropriate to four-year degrees in civil, electrical and mechanical engineering at the University of Minnesota, University of Minnesota-Duluth, Minnesota State University-Mankato (both Mankato and Twin-Cities programs), St. Cloud State University, and the University of St.Thomas. Students interested in a major in engineering are encouraged to consult with academic advisors/counselors when selecting liberal arts classes. Students interested in transferring to an engineering program outside Minnesota are strongly advised to consult with the engineering faculty, Anand B. Vyas ( about their transfer plans.

A.S., Engineering Fundamentals (60 Credits)

Program Planning Guide a PDF document

Purpose: The Associate in Science degree in Engineering Fundamentals prepares students for transfer to the four year college or university to complete a bachelor's degree program in one of the following engineering disciplines: aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, manufacturing, mechanical, and nuclear. The program covers courses typically offered in freshman and sophomore years of an accredited engineering curriculum in the United States. Students are strongly recommended to keep themselves informed of the rules and requirements related to the major department at the transfer institution (four year college or university where they plan to transfer). Students are advised to use the counseling expertise available via Counseling Center. Academic counselors also provide students with a course plan specific to each engineering discipline listed above.
