Engineering Option, Liberal Arts A.A.

 

Engineering Option, Liberal Arts A.A.

Are you creative? Do you like solving practical problems? Do you want to make a difference in the world around you?  Then a career in Engineering may be right for you.

This transfer track prepares you for a four-year university's engineering school. Engineering is a limited access program at most universities, and specific areas within each may also have their own requirements. For example, the University of Florida requires a 2.5 GPA in the A.A. degree but could require a 2.8 GPA in calculus and physics courses (first attempts only) to major in electrical engineering. Students are encouraged to be familiar with the admissions requirements at the university they plan to attend.

Aeroplanes are not designed by science, but by art in spite of some pretense and humbug to the contrary. I do not mean to suggest that engineering can do without science, on the contrary, it stands on scientific foundations, but there is a big gap between scientific research and the engineering product which has to be bridged by the art of the engineer.
–  British Engineer to the Royal Aeronautical Society, 1922
