Engineering, Associate of Science in Engineering

Engineer Your Path to Success

Everything is engineered. Every building, bridge, highway, pipeline, vehicle, toy, computer, athletic shoe – every manmade object is taken from idea to reality by engineers. San Jacinto College offers an Associate of Science in Engineering (ASE) degree designed to transfer to Texas public universities that includes courses in physics, chemistry, math, and engineering. 

With this foundation, you’ll shape the future of space travel or develop our next great energy source. You may secure the world’s supply of fresh water or build the next Olympic stadium. An engineering degree gives you unlimited options to pursue ambitious goals and succeed. 

An ASE from San Jacinto College:

  • promotes maximum transferability for students and offers courses based on a particular field of engineering and the institution to which they will transfer;
  • helps students develop skills for the management of natural resources, environmental restoration, and the design, installation, and improvement of integrated systems of business and manufacturing in a variety of fields; and
  • prepares students for careers in biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer and electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering, and more.

Additional Information

San Jacinto College participates in the Voluntary Mechanical Engineering Transfer Compact. The Transfer Compact represents 77 percent of the Texas public universities offering mechanical engineering and 75 percent of the Texas public community or technical colleges offering lower-division engineering courses. The compact guarantees transfer credit for community college students accepted into university mechanical engineering programs.

In order to transfer to a four-year institution, students must meet any and all entrance requirements of the receiving institution, including grade point averages and/or testing requirements. 

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this program are prepared to become engineering professionals working in a wide range of fields such as designing water systems, highways, manufacturing systems, piping systems for chemical plants, bridges, computers, and even toy making.

The Associate of Science in Engineering (ASE) is a collegiate degree approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) consisting of lower-division courses intended for transfer to baccalaureate programs that lead to an engineering degree. The ASE, as defined by THECB, is fully transferrable to Texas public universities that participate in the Tuning In Texas articulation agreement (transfer compact).

The College recommends students seek the advice of an educational planner and an engineering faculty member or Department Chair. Students who complete the ASE will be required to meet any and all entrance requirements of the receiving institution, including grade point averages and/or testing requirements.
