Engineering Transfer to Oregon Tech - Renewable Energy

Associate of Science Degree

About the Program

The Associate of Science – Renewable Energy Engineering is for students interested in transferring to a bachelor’s degree program at Oregon Tech.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Overall program learning outcomes for the Renewable Energy Engineering – Transfer to Oregon Tech are:

Identify the broad context of engineering problems, including describing the problem conditions, identifying possible contributing factors, and generating alternative solution strategies.

Identify the fundamental elements of engineering design including associated safety, quality, schedule and cost considerations.

Employ mathematics, science, and computing techniques in a systematic and rigorous manner to support the study and solution of engineering problems.

Write and solve applicable equations of equilibrium for statically determinate objects.

Apply statics concepts to trusses, frames and machines, and calculation of internal forces.

Define voltage, current, power and energy for both DC and AC circuits, and how they relate with each other via sinusoids and phasors.

Entry Requirements

Students in engineering majors are asked to work closely with Dusty Rittenbach, Science Department Chair, jrittenbach@roguecc.edu, to ensure success in academic planning.

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college registration policies and with a Science Department recommendation. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over 10 years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate program coordinator before being accepted toward core requirements. Students must complete coursework in their major at a “C” or better level before proceeding to advanced coursework. Engineering requires advanced coursework, and may take additional time for an associate’s degree. The preparatory transfer course-work, which can be taken at RCC, may take up to three years.

Graduation Requirements

Students are required to complete all courses in this program with a grade of “C” or better to receive their degrees. Certain required courses are graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.
