Associate in Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering, AS-T Track 2/MRP

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Alphabetical List of Programs


The Associate in Science Transfer (AS-T) degree Track 2 is designed to prepare bioengineering and chemical engineering majors for transfer to a four-year institution with junior standing.

Bioengineering and Chemical 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.

Bioengineering and Chemical 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 bioengineering or chemical engineering.
  • use appropriate quantitative tools to solve scientific questions, represent data, and document scientific findings as applied to bioengineering and chemical 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 bioengineering and chemical engineering
  • safely and appropriately use standard laboratory or field equipment to make precise and reliable measurements as applied to bioengineering and chemical 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 bioengineering and chemical engineering.
  • demonstrate communication, critical thinking, cultural humility, information literacy, and teamwork skills
  • meet Humanities , Natural Science , Quantitative Reasoning , Social Science , and Written Communication  general education 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.

Program Requirements

Required Course Sequence

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& 101 with the DSJ attribute meets both the ENGL& 101 requirement and the DSJ requirement).

Note: Not all sections of a course meet the DSJ requirement. Students should review the class information to ensure the class section includes “course attributes: meets diversity requirement.”

Visit the DSJ requirement webpage to view the current list of general education and technical courses that meet the requirement.

Students who have taken a DSJ class in a previous certificate or degree, do not have to take another DSJ class.
