Transfer Programs
Degree: 
Associate of Arts and Sciences with a major in Science and a Specialization in Engineering
Length: 
Four-semester (two-year) program
Purpose: 

This program is designed to provide the first two years of a degree in engineering science with particular emphasis on the University of Virginia School of Engineering and Applied Science PRODUCED in Virginia intitiative. Students who are planning to transfer into other engineering programs at the University of Virginia or other four-year institutions are urged to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the major department in the college or university to which transfer is contemplated and to consult with their counselor or advisor at Wytheville Community College in planning their program.

In addition to the admission requirements established for the college, entry into the Science Specialization in Engineering program requires competency in English and Math Essentials MTE 1-9 as demonstrated through the placement and diagnostic tests, or by satisfactorily completing the required MTE units or equivalent.

The following is a suggested sequence in which students may plan their class schedules to ensure graduation in two years.
