Civil Engineering A.S. Tennessee Transfer Pathway

The Associate of Science degree program for Civil Pre-Engineering is designed to prepare students for successful transfer to a four-year college or university. This degree path is a great choice for students interested in pursuing a career in civil engineering or similar career path. In addition to core curriculum, the Pre-Engineering program introduces students to the following:

  • a study of matrices, systems of linear equations, determinants, vectors, vector spaces, eigenvalues, eigenvectors and other selected topics
  • an introduction to probability and statistics
  • a study of differentiation and integration or trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, logarithmic and exponential functions and integration techniques
  • a study of ordinary differential equations with applications, numerical solutions, power series and LaPlace transforms
  • a study of particle kinematics, kinematics of rigid bodies, absolute and relative motion, kinetics, applications of Newton's Laws and other scientific principles
  • a study of vector algebra, resultants, equilibrium, friction, centers of gravity, centroid, moments of inertia, statics of particles and analysis of structures
  • and more interesting and dynamic course material to prepare students for successful transfer to a four-year baccalaureate program

Practical Experience

Students will be introduced to the following:

  • critical thinking
  • in-depth research and analysis
  • interaction with students and instructors
  • exposure to fascinating coursework, lectures and classroom interaction

Career Opportunities

The A.S. degree prepares students for transferring to a Tennessee public university or select regionally accredited, non-profit, Tennessee private colleges and universities to complete their baccalaureate degree. Upon graduation with a B.S., students can work as a civil engineer.
