Engineering courses may be taken as part of the Associate in Arts and Science DTA degree or as part of the Associate in Science- Transfer (AS-T 2) degree. Within the Associate in Arts and Science DTA degree, these courses may be used toward the Specified or General Elective credit. Students seeking Associate in Arts and Science DTA degree should refer to the catalog section “Degrees & Certificates” for a detailed description of the degree, its program outcomes, and courses that will satisfy degree requirements.

Within the Associate in Science-Transfer degree, engineering courses satisfy the AS-T 2 Pre-Engineering MRP Degree path. The AS-T 2 Pre-Engineering MRP Degree path allows students to prepare for upper division study toward a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering and enter the college or university at junior standing should they be admitted to the school’s engineering program. This degree gives students the opportunity to make substantial progress toward fulfilling major requirements while completing at least half of the Breadth requirements for Humanities and Social Science.

At a basic level, engineers apply scientific and mathematical principles to make the world a better place. They may design machines, roads, buildings, or circuitry; combine the inventions of others to develop or improve processes; oversee the operation of technological equipment in facilities ranging from waste treatment plants to large manufacturing facilities to water purification plants; develop new materials that are stronger, lighter, or more environmentally friendly.

Since programs differ at each college, students should consider program outlines published by the college or university where the student plans to continue his/her course of study. The following recommended courses will prepare students for most senior institutions. Students should prepare their quarterly schedules with the assistance of an advisor knowledgeable in their transfer area. Students should seek out their advisor for more information and guidance on possible courses to take to complete this degree and to prepare and plan for future transfer.

## Advising Maps

Advising maps for the AS-T degrees offered at BBCC are available on the BBCC Website. Use the Academics dropdown, below Programs & Degrees, select Advising Maps. Once on the Advising Maps page look for:

- Biology AS-T Track I
- Chemistry AS-T Track I
- Engineering, Computer Science, or Physics AS-T Track II

AS-T Track 2 Pre-Engineering MRP degrees offered statewide include four pathways.

- Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering (BioE and ChemE) Pathway
- Computer and Electrical Engineering (Comp E and EE) Pathway
- Civil and Mechanical Engineering (CE and ME) Pathway
- Note: This pathway includes Aeronautical, Environmental and Industrial Engineering.

- Materials Science and Manufacturing Engineering (MSE and MFGE) Pathway

BBCC does not offer all of the courses required within these Pre-Engineering MRP pathways. Students interested in one of these Pre-Engineering MRP pathways should see their advisor to develop an educational plan that would enable students to work toward one of the above listed MRPs.

The advising map is helpful to prepare for advising and registration each quarter. Students should maintain an accurate record of courses completed and bring their advising map with them for advising appointments.

Credits 1This course utilizes lab experiments to verify electrical circuit principles that are learned in ENGR& 204. Students will also perform measurements to confirm the analytical solutions from mathematical models. Some engineering programs including electrical engineering require this course. Please see your advisor.

### ENGR 240: Applied Numerical Methods

Credits 5This course includes application of the following methods: elements of error analysis, real roots of an equation, polynomial approximation by finite difference and least square methods, interpolation, quadrature, numerical solution of ordinary differential equations, and numerical solutions of systems of linear equations. The student should expect to program a computer in addition to using a graphing calculator.
