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 Other. The Other focus area provides students with the opportunity to identify and take courses within disciplines applicable to engineering fields such as: Chemical, Biomedical, Embedded Systems, Environmental, Manufacturing, and Industrial Engineering.

Students are strongly encouraged to work with an advisor at the desired transfer institution and an OCC counselor to select courses that will maximize their applicability upon transfer.

Students must meet the requirements set by the institution to which they plan on transferring to. Completing the Pre-Engineering degree does not guarantee acceptance at another college or university.

Students who complete the degree are well qualified to work at an entry-level position within the electrical, mechanical, computer, or industrial industry, and should consider applying for summer employment to gain practical experience.
