Where does my path start?
You will complete an Associate of Science-Transfer (AS-T) Track 2 at Shoreline.
Select the area(s) of engineering you would like to pursue and consult those Major Preparation Sheet(s).
Once you complete your Shoreline degree, you can transfer to a four-year school to earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Engineering.
What courses should I take?
This unofficial guide is intended to support you as you prepare for your major Please consult with an advisor and your chosen four-year school(s), as program and admissions requirements vary and may change without notice.
General Education Requirements -18-20 Credits
Quantitative/Symbolic Reasoning (5 Credits)
Distribution Requirements - 10 Credits
Pre-Major Requirements - 33 Credits
Program Specific Courses (27-29 Credits)
Any transfer courses count. A maximum of 5 credits for restricted/vocational course work. Recommended: CHEM 172 /CHEM 182 , CS 121 or CS 143 , CS& 141 , ENGR 100 , ENGR& 104 , ENGR 102 , ENGR& 114 , ENGR 115 , ENGR 202 , ENGR& 214 , ENGR& 215 , ENGR& 225 , ENGR 240 , MATH 207 , MATH 208 , MATH& 264 .
Where can I transfer?
The AS-T makes it possible for students to transfer to a number of public and private colleges and universities in the U.S. with junior standing. Washington State institutions and major programs are listed below.
Central Washington University (EET, IT, MET)
Eastern Washington University (EE, ME, MET)
Gonzaga University (CE, COMPE, EE, ME)
Saint Martin’s University (CE, ME)
Seattle Pacific University (ASE, COMPE, EE, ME)
University of Washington (AE, BE, BSE, CE, CHE, COMPE, EE, HCD, IE, MSE, ME)
Washington State University (BE, CE, CHE, EE, ME, MSE)
Western Washington University (EE, IT, ManE, PCE)
Seattle University (CE, COMPE, EE, ME)
Walla Walla University (BE, CE, COMPE, EE, ME)
*Note: Engineering Majors at WA universities are designated as follows: Aeronautical (AE), Appropriate and Sustainable Engineering (ASE) Bioengineering (BE), Bioresource Science (BSE) Chemical Engineering (CHE), Civil (CE), Computer Engineering (COMPE), Electrical Engineering (EE), Electronics Engineering Technology (EET), Human Centered Design (HCD), Industrial (IE), Industrial Technology (IT), Manufacturing Engineering (ManE), Materials Science (MSE), Mechanical (ME), Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET), Plastics and Composites Engineering (PCE)
What does your chosen four-year school require?
University engineering programs require specific courses for each major. This “Engineering, General” preparation sheet shows the minimum requirements for the Associate in Science Transfer-Track 2 degree. These minimum requirements will not usually meet admissions requirements into the junior year of a specific engineering major. It is recommended that you pursue the Major Related Programs* for one of the following engineering pathways as preparation for a four-year engineering degree. Consult the planning guides for those degrees for more information.
- Biological and Chemical Engineering (MRP)
- Computer and Electrical Engineering (MRP)
- Aeronautical, Civil, Industrial, Manufacturing, Materials Science and Mechanical Engineering, Plastics and Composites (MRP)
* A Major Related Program (MRP) prepares students for entrance into select majors at particular four-year schools. These programs have specific required classes within the AS-T degree, and will be shown on your transcript as a different type of completion than the general AS-T.
Students are encouraged to study the schools and departments to which they plan to apply and work with their academic advisor to make a course plan. If you are preparing for an engineering program at the University of Washington (Seattle), please consult the UW College of Engineering handout.
