What is an AS-T Track 2 MRP?

The Associate in Science Transfer (AS-T) degree is designed to prepare students entrance into a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program in Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering. This AS-T degree is a Major Related Program detailing university requirements in the sciences, mathematics, computer science, communications and engineering so students will be ready for junior standing. Students will be required to take additional courses after transfer to fulfill general university requirements. Computer and Electrical Engineering is also an excellent major for graduate studies in Computer Science, Engineering, Law, Business and Education.

What does your chosen four-year school require?

Before choosing classes, become familiar with the four-year program where you want to apply: visit the website, email the department, and/or speak with a Shoreline advisor. Below are examples from Washington schools with different admissions and graduation requirements. Check with the school for world language requirements. (Non-native speakers of English are often exempt from this requirement.) University engineering programs require specific courses for each major. Not all majors/universities require all courses on this “Major Related Program” planning guide. At many schools, admission to these majors is competitive. Students are encouraged to investigate the schools and departments to which they plan to apply. The “Engineering, General” Planning Guide shows the minimum requirements for the Associate in Science Transfer-Track 2 degree.

Computer and Electrical Engineering-What is it?

Computer and Electrical Engineering are intrinsically intertwined. While Computer Engineers focus specifically on the design, implementation and operation of computer hardware and software systems, Electrical Engineers design, develop and test all devices and systems that use electrical and electromagnetic energy. Both majors build on a solid foundation of math, science, computer science, engineering design and communications.

Areas of Study in Computer and Electrical Engineering: Electrical Circuits, Linear Systems, Thermodynamics, Engineering Problem Solving and Design, Data Structures, Microprocessors, Digital Operations and Computation, Electromagnetic Waves, Wireless Communication, Computer Programming, Operating Systems and Networks.

What can I do with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer and Electrical Engineering?

In addition to strong technical, scientific and problem solving skills, engineers often rely on teamwork and clear communications to manage projects effectively. These skills apply to a wide range of careers in such areas as hardware research and design, software and electrical engineering, management, teaching, sales and consulting.

Potential employers include: Engineering firms, manufacturing firms, semi conductor companies, computer software and hardware companies, wireless communication companies, government agencies, colleges and universities.
