Engineering - A.S. Degree

Explore the World of Engineering

Humankind has been engineering since before we could write. From defensive walls to aqueducts to stadiums to modern computer-aided design (CAD) projects, engineers are often at the forefront of conceiving, building, maintaining, and salvaging the world around us. Using up-to date software to gain fundamental and practical engineering knowledge, students will explore real life engineering problems and use engineering tools and concepts to solve them. Using up-to-date hardware and software, students will learn programming, graphic design, mechanics, and electrical circuits and leave ACC well grounded to pursue any number of Engineering paths be it mechanical, electrical,
industrial, or design.
