Computer and Embedded Systems Engineering Technology Transfer to Oregon Tech

Associate of Science Degree

About the Program

The Associate of Science (AS) degree is based on a signed articulation agreement with Oregon Institute of Technology. The program is designed for students transferring to its baccalaureate degree program in Computer Engineering Technology and/or Embedded Systems Engineering Technology and graduates are guaranteed junior standing in the program upon transferring. Students must work closely with advisors in their areas of interest to ensure electives are appropriate. The curriculum allows for 53 core credits within the major area

Students must work closely with their advisors to ensure transferability. If students transfer before completing this degree or transfer in a major not covered by prior agreements, courses will be evaluated individually toward the transfer requirements of the college of their choice. Students are advised to obtain written approval from Oregon Tech to guarantee their catalog of transfer for three years.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. The program learning outcomes for the Computer and Embedded Systems Engineering Technology Transfer to Oregon Tech program are:

  • An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use technical literature.
  • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results; an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.
  • Students will be prepared to transfer into Oregon Tech’s Computer and Embedded Systems Engineering program.

Entry Requirements

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.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over four years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements.

Graduation Requirements

The Associate of Science degree will be awarded to students who complete all credits in this program with a grade of “C” or better. 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. Students should be aware that Oregon Tech requires a grade of “B” or better in CS161U and CS162U for transfer.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate. Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult an advisor with any program completion questions.
