Pre-Engineering (PRE.EGR.AAS)

Associate in Applied Science

Engineering/Manufacturing and Industrial Technology

Auburn Hills Campus

The Pre-Engineering program provides students with the academic foundation needed for transfer to a bachelor’s degree program in engineering science. OCC offers three engineering focus areas – Electrical/Computer, Mechanical/Civil, and Industrial.
Students earn an Associate of Applied Science degree and are prepared to enter their bachelor’s degree program with about half of the required credits already completed.

Students are strongly encouraged to work with counselors at the intended transferring institution to maximize course transferability.
Students must meet the requirements set by the institution they will transfer to. Completing the Pre-Engineering degree does not guarantee acceptance at another college or university.

Although most students will transfer to a 4-year engineering institution, students who consider this to be their terminal degree are qualified to work as engineering technicians within the electrical, mechanical, computer, or industrial industry.
