Engineering Technology (ASA)

This curriculum is designed to provide a solid foundation in math, science, and engineering for students who are interested in transferring to a four-year institution to complete a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering. Successful completion of the program leads to the degree of Associate in Science and Arts. This degree is designed for transfer.

The Michigan Transfer Agreement Associate in Science and Arts (ASA) degrees are effective as of fall 2014. A minimum of 62 credit hours with a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA is required for the ASA Degree. Courses numbered below 100 do not count toward the ASA.
MCC and the Michigan Transfer Agreement require a “C” or better in courses used to meet ASA and MTA requirements. Groups of courses requiring grades of “C” or better are noted on this guide. Individual courses within other groups may also require a “C” or better; these courses are noted by boldface type.
