About the Program -- Year One

Engineering is in great demand which results in high wages and very low unemployment. One reason for this shortage of qualified engineers is that an engineering degree requires more work than most other degrees. Starting at Rogue Community College with small class sizes and instructors whose primary emphasis is teaching rather than research is a great way to begin this pathway. The Associate of Science – 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 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.

Conduct and document laboratory experiments in the sciences and engineering, effectively communicating determined quantitative relationships using both graphs and equations.

Exhibit good teamwork skills and serve as effective members of laboratory and project teams.

Articulate and justify technical solutions to an audience through oral, written and graphical communication.

Communicate the importance of professional and ethical responsibilities of engineers and be aware of codes and other sources of guidance for professionally ethical decision making.

Be prepared to transfer to Oregon Tech as an engineering student.

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 by the results of their placement assessment.  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.
