Associate of Science Track 2 – Computer and Electrical Engineering MRP
Overview of Associate of Science (AS) MRPs
Major-Related Programs (MRP) help prepare students for their junior year as they pursue a bachelor’s degree. MRPs outline the courses students need to be well-prepared for upper-division courses upon transfer.
Engineering AS-T Track 2 MRP pathways are for students preparing to transfer for engineering majors as a junior in most four-year Washington universities.
South offers the following Engineering MRPs:
- AS-T Computer and Electrical Engineering MRP (further information found below on this page)
- Designed for the following majors: computer and electrical engineering
- AS-T Civil and Mechanical Engineering MRP (further information found below on this page)
- Designed for the following majors: civil, mechanical, aeronautical, environmental, and industrial engineering
- Learn more about this MRP
For each MRP, the required courses are common junior-ready transfer preparation for all majors at all participating baccalaureate institutions. The degree becomes tailored for specific preparation to a single major at a single transfer institution through appropriate selection of the specialization courses. It is critical that students be in communication with advisors and the intended transfer baccalaureate institution.
Computer & Electrical Engineering MRP Program Description
Computer and electrical engineers plan, develop, and prototype to turn nebulous ideas into something real. They use math and science to break down and solve complex problems and create new electronic and digital products and services. Professionals work with some of the most rapidly developing technology humankind has ever seen.
Electrical and computer engineers work with nanoelectronics and robotics to create biomedical instruments that save lives, create new robotic and artificial intelligence systems that can search disaster sites or remotely explore other planets, and make devices and systems that harvest clean energy from the sun, wind, and sea to power our energy grid and decrease the effects of Climate Change. Electrical engineers typically work on the hardware side of the spectrum, while computer engineers work at the interface between the hardware and software of electronics.
Completion of this degree opens doors to global career opportunities in software or hardware design, aerospace, robotics and other industries that rely on advanced computers and electronic systems. If you like to design and develop solutions to some of the world’s most complex problems, this pathway could be the right choice for you.
