ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE DEGREE WITH A FIELD OF STUDY IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

This plan is an official Field of Study Degree approved
by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.


Offered on Brookhaven, Mountain View and Richland Campuses

This is a new award effective Fall 2020.

Degree Code: AS.FS.ELEC.ENGR

The Associate of Science (A.S.) Degree with a Field of Study (FOS) in Electrical Engineering (EE) is a selection of lower-division courses that are guaranteed by state law to transfer and apply to a degree program. If a student takes all the courses in this AS FOS and then transfers to another Texas public institution of higher education, the FOS is guaranteed to transfer as a block and be applied to the appropriate major. If a student has completed the FOS, the Texas common core curriculum, and any university or college courses required of all students regardless of major, then the student is finished with all the lower-division courses for the degree program at any Texas public institution. If a student transfers with an incomplete FOS, then each completed FOS course is guaranteed to transfer and apply to the degree program, although the institution many require additional lower-division courses.

This degree does not include all Core Curriculum course requirements. Students who plan to transfer must work closely with an advisor/counselor. Courses in the Field of Study must transfer at all Texas public institutions of higher education and must be applied to the student's degree program in Electrical Engineering and related degree programs.

In order to be eligible to receive this A.S. degree, a student must:

  1. Complete a minimum of 60 credit hours including all the required courses listed;
  2. Earn a grade of "C" or better in English 1301 and the selected college-level mathematics course;
  3. Receive a GPA (2) of at least 2.00 ("C");
  4. Meet all Texas Success Initiative (TSI) standards and course prerequisites; and
  5. Complete at least 25% of the credit hours required for graduation through instruction by Dallas College.

Students who plan to transfer must work closely with an advisor/counselor.
