For students planning to pursue an Engineering major and transfer to a four-year institution, as a general rule, students should follow the Associate of Science Degree in Engineering at Grayson College as part of the Science and Technology Career Pathway. All students are advised to counsel with the university/college of their choice to determine which courses offered at Grayson College are applicable to that institution's bachelor's degree in their desired major.

Associate of Science - Engineering

The Associate of Science Degree requires that TSI requirements are met.

*Please review your Student Planner or contact your Student Success Coach/Faculty Advisor to review which courses may be used to fill this degree requirement.

Students earning an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or Associate of Arts in Teaching Degree at Grayson College must complete 42 hours of a state mandated Core Curriculum in addition to major courses and electives in their particular area of interest.
