Associate of Science
Engineering is an exacting applied science that requires a broad background of analytical skills. Many branches of engineering require specialization at the junior and senior levels. The Engineering program at Laramie County Community College gives students a general, transferable background in mathematics and engineering science necessary for later specialization.
The program provides the equivalent of two years of a four-year engineering program in small classes with more individual attention than at most four-year institutions. With an Associate of Science in Engineering, students have a strong foundation in mathematics and engineering science needed to transfer and successfully complete a bachelor of science in a field of engineering at a four-year institution.
Career OpportunitiesCareer opportunities in engineering are abundant, and national starting salaries for applicants with bachelor’s degrees average $42,000 to $58,000.
