This pathway is designed to meet Associate in Science Track 2 degree requirements with an emphasis in computer & electrical engineering. This pre-major pathway is designed to prepare you to transfer at the junior-level into an engineering program at a four-year college or university. Computer and electrical engineers make the world a better place by starting with a nebulous idea and working with other designers to plan, develop, and prototype to turn it into something real. They use math and science to break down and solve complex and compelling problems and create new electronic and digital products and services. Electrical and computer engineering professionals work at the heart of the most rapidly developing technology humankind has ever seen. They employ nanoelectronics, computers and robotics to create biomedical instruments that save lives. Electrical and computer engineers create new robotic and AI systems that can search disaster sites or remotely explore other planets. They make devices and systems that harvest the energy of the sun, wind and sea and channel it into the energy grid that supports modern civilization. Electronics and software design looks at  the spectrum between hardware and software. Electrical engineers typically work on the hardware side of the spectrum while computer engineers work at the interface between electronics hardware and software. 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!
