The skills developed completing an Associate in Engineering (AE) provide a solid foundation in quantitative reasoning and problem solving which are used in a wide range of engineering career pathways including:
This degree requires successful completion of a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit (SHC) of courses. It includes general education and prerequisite courses that are acceptable to all state funded Bachelor of Engineering programs.
To be eligible for the transfer of credits under the Associate in Engineering to Bachelor of Science in Engineering Articulation Agreement, graduates must obtain a grade of “C” or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. this doesn’t however guarantee admission to the program.
Students who complete the program have the opportunity to transfer to four-year engineering programs at East Carolina University, North Carolina State University, North Carolina A&T, UNC-Charlotte, and Western Carolina University.
Completing the first two years at NCC could save students more than $30,000 when compared to attending all four years at a university.
