Program Admission dates: Fall, Spring
The Associate in Science Transfer (AS-T) degree is designed to prepare mechanical, civil, aeronautical, industrial and materials science engineering majors for transfer to a four-year institution with junior standing.
Mechanical, Civil, Aeronautical, Industrial, Materials Science Engineering AS-T students should contact potential transfer institutions early in their program. Engineering programs are competitive and require a higher GPA overall or a higher GPA in specific courses. This degree prepares students for upper division coursework but does not guarantee students admission to the major. Students are responsible for checking specific major requirements of baccalaureate institutions in the year prior to transferring.
Mechanical, Civil, Aeronautical, Industrial, Materials Science Engineering graduates will:
- apply the skills and knowledge acquired through coursework to analyze issues, solve problems, and critically evaluate an issue or theory as applied to mechanical, civil, aeronautical, industrial, and materials science engineering
- use appropriate quantitative tools to solve scientific questions, represent data, and document scientific findings as applied to mechanical, civil, aeronautical, industrial, and materials science engineering
- demonstrate the knowledge acquired through coursework by effectively communicating to team members, the public, and members of the scientific community, using written, oral, and visual communication methods as applied to mechanical, civil, aeronautical, industrial, and materials science engineering
- safely and appropriately use standard laboratory or field equipment to make precise and reliable measurements as applied to mechanical, civil, aeronautical, industrial, and materials science engineering
- demonstrate understanding that science relies on evidence, and that scientific knowledge is tentative, open to revision, falsifiable and subject to constraints as applied to mechanical, civil, aeronautical, industrial, and materials science engineering
- demonstrate critical thinking, intercultural appreciation, information literacy, communication, and teamwork
- meet Social Science, Humanities, Written Communication, and Quantitative Reasoning distribution area outcomes
Lake Washington Institute of Technology does not offer every course each quarter. It is the student’s responsibility to consult the Class Schedule and work out an individual schedule with an advisor. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.
Required Course Sequence - Fall Quarter Start*
Diversity and Social Justice Requirement
Within the degree requirements, students must complete a 3-5 credit course that meets the college’s Diversity and Social Justice (DSJ) requirement. DSJ courses are designated in the college schedule and are designed to meet other general education or technical requirements simultaneous to meeting the DSJ requirement (e.g., ENGL& 101D meets both the ENGL& 101 requirement and the DSJ requirement).
Visit the DSJ requirement webpage to view the current list of general education and technical courses that meet the requirement.
