Associate in Engineering Science (A.E.S.) Degree

The Associate in Engineering Science (A.E.S.) degree is designed to complete the lower-division (freshman and sophomore) portion of a baccalaureate degree in engineering. Baccalaureate degree programs in engineering are highly structured and require extensive, sequential mathematics and science courses at the lower division level. In order to take courses in a similar pattern to those of freshman and sophomore students in the field of engineering at a university, some general education courses are postponed to the junior and senior years. Even though the AES degree does not contain the entire IAI General Education Core Curriculum, students who transfer, having earned a minimum of 30 semester credit hours of college level coursework, have the option of completing the IAI GECC requirements or the receiving institution’s lower-division general education requirements.



Major Directive

Updated: September 28, 2010

The major panel courses recommended will be accepted as credit toward the major at the receiving institutions listed. Credit will either be accepted as a course equivalent or be counted as elective credit toward fulfilling the requirements of the major.

  • Once a transfer institution is chosen, students should consult the appropriate transfer guide as soon as possible for guidance on the most successful transfer path .Click here to view other Articulation Agreements..
  • Note that if the receiving institution does not offer the course or does not offer it at the lower-division level, the student will receive elective lower-division major credit for the course but may be required to take the course at the upper division level.
  • Receiving institutions may still require additional lower division courses to satisfy the major requirements, but students transferring should be able to complete the remaining courses in the same time that a native student can be reasonably expected to do so.
  • Approval of this list of recommended courses does not guarantee that the student will be admitted to the receiving institution or to that major.

The following institutions have agreed to the major courses listed below:
