Engineering Transfer to Oregon Tech - Civil

Associate of Science Degree

About the Program

The Associate of Science – Civil 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 Engineering Transfer to Oregon Tech - Civil are:

  • Identify the broad context of engineering problems.
  • Identify the fundamental elements of engineering design.
  • Employ mathematics, science, and computing techniques in a systematic and rigorous manner to support engineering problems.
  • Write and solve applicable equations of equilibrium for statically determinate objects.

Entry Requirements

Students in engineering majors are asked to work closely with the Science Department Chair, [email protected], 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.

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.

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.
