Electrical Engineering is a branch of engineering that applies principles of engineering, science, and mathematics to modeling, analysis, design, and maintenance of electrical, electronic, and electromagnetic systems, components, or processes. The Associate of Science (AS) in Electrical Engineering is designed for students wishing to transfer to a 4-year institution. The curriculum also prepares students to work professionally in areas centered around electrical engineering such as Electronics, Power, Telecommunications, Computers, Autonomous Systems, and Signal and Information Processing Systems.
By completing the degree, students will earn:
- Electrical Engineering, AS
Electrical Engineering, AS
[AS_ELEG offered at LSC-CyFair, LSC-Kingwood, LSC-Montgomery, LSC-North Harris, LSC-Tomball, and LSC-University Park]
Total Credit Hours Required for Degree: 60
Texas Tuning Agreements
This Associate of Science Degree adheres to the Texas Tuning Agreements that are designed to facilitate transfer for students attending community colleges who intend to complete specific bachelor’s degrees at identified Texas public colleges and universities. These agreements create shared understanding of subject-specific knowledge and transferable skills that students must demonstrate upon completion of degree programs. The “Fine Tuning” (or course alignment) processes involve identifying a set of lower-division courses for a given discipline area and aligning the learning outcomes across institutions in the state to provide a basis for voluntary transfer compacts and articulation agreements.
Colleges may offer specialized academic associate degrees that incorporate a voluntary statewide transfer compact and a portion of the college’s 42 hour approved core curriculum. LSC students that pursue one of these specialized academic degrees will not graduate core complete. Students may take additional LSC classes to complete the 42 hour core prior to transferring, or they may wait and complete the remaining core requirements at the transfer university.
