A10500 (Associate Degree)
This program is designed to promote educational advancement opportunities for Associate in Engineering degree completers moving between the NC community colleges and the constituent institutions of The University of North Carolina in order to complete Bachelor of Science in Engineering degrees. The student may complete course work equivalent to the first two years of study required for a bachelor’s degree. Unless otherwise indicated, classes in this program satisfy the articulation agreement with colleges in the University of North Carolina System and are eligible for transfer to four-year degree programs, provided all other requirements for transfer are satisfied.
The Associate in Engineering degree (A.E.) is awarded upon completion of program requirements. Graduates usually transfer to a senior institution with junior status. Follow up studies show that community college transfer students are generally successful in their studies at senior institutions.
