The Associate of Science in General Engineering is a four-semester program that provides a solid, engineering-relevant foundation in the physical sciences and mathematics and basic knowledge in the major areas of engineering.
Required courses also include course and lab work in electrical circuits, building construction, computer engineering, materials, mechanics and other fields. Electives enable students to begin concentrating in a particular field-- electrical, civil, mechanical, chemical and computer engineering—in preparation for continued studies or the workplace.
The ASGE is an excellent option for students who are undecided about the specific field they wish to follow and wish to explore various areas of engineering before continuing their studies for the Bachelor degree. It is also designed for students who are interested in working immediately in assistant positions in engineering firms as well as in technical sales, construction management, and engineering-related business services.
Structure of the Program
A total of 20 courses are required for the ASGE degree. Full-time students may complete the program in 4 semesters, while part-time students will need 3 to 4 years to complete their degree, depending on the number of courses taken each semester. An academic year includes two semesters, each semester running for 15 weeks. New classes start in September/October for new and continuing students, and February of each academic year. Consult the Hellenic American University website for a detailed list and description of courses in the degree program.
