Associate in Science

Minimum of 62-64 credit hours
Engineering students learn about fundamental engineering principles and how they are applied to real life problems. At Oklahoma City Community College, the Engineering Program is designed especially for students who want to complete a bachelor’s or advanced degree in any of the various branches of engineering. Courses cover subjects such as Engineering Graphics and Design, Statics, Dynamics, Strength of Materials, Thermodynamics, Electrical Science, Fluid Mechanics and Programming. Students in engineering are often interested in chemistry, physics, mathematics, technology, computers and electronics. Degrees in engineering prepare students to continue studies at a four-year college or university. Once students graduate, they find career opportunities with industry or government in any of more than 30 branches of engineering.
