No. of Credits: 70
Contacts: A. Ronaldi, Chair, Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Division

The Associate of Science in Engineering (ASE) in Electrical Engineering degree is designed to transfer as a block of courses rather than on a course-by-course basis into four-year engineering programs in Maryland. Upon completion of the ASE in Electrical Engineering course of study, graduates will enter the four-year institution as a junior electrical engineering major.

The maximum number of credits accepted in transfer from other institutions to this program is 52.


Career Opportunities:

electrical engineer after transfer and completion of the BS in Electrical Engineering

Transfer Options:

A complete list of all transfer opportunities can be found on the Transfer Services page

Student Learning Outcomes:

Students will…

1. Effectively communicate problem solving processes and solutions, orally and in writing, in an ethical and professional manner.
2. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to understand and implement the engineering project development process.
3. Utilize advanced data structures and algorithms for programming. 
4. Utilize discrete mathematical structures in the design and analysis of algorithms and software engineering. 


Required Courses and Recommended Sequence:

The following is a recommended sequence of courses for completing this program. College Prep and prerequisite course requirements, credit load, and/or course availability may affect a student’s individual progress. Course availability within the program sequences is specifically intended for full-time students who begin their course work with the fall semester. Students should always consult their online program evaluation or an academic advisor to better understand typical course availability and individual program planning.

Humanities (3 credits)


Social/behavioral sciences (3 credits)


Social/behavioral sciences (3 credits)


Southern Maryland Partnership Agreement

The following plan is for Electrical Engineering students from the College of Southern Maryland to transfer to the University of Maryland through the Southern Maryland Partnership Agreement:

University of Maryland Transfer Notes:

University of Maryland, Clark School of Engineering has the following minimum transfer requirements (these are the same for UMCP students transferring into the engineering school):


1. Students must have at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA in all college-level work at all colleges attended (2.999 is not acceptable).

2. Students must have taken the following gateway courses:

a. ENG-1010 or equivalent, with a minimum grade of C

b. A general education humanities or social sciences course, with a minimum grade of C

c. CHE-1350 (Chemistry for Engineers) or CHE-1210/1210L (Chemistry II), with a minimum grade of C

d. MTH-1210 (Calculus II), with a minimum grade of B

e. PHY-1210 (Physics I), with a minimum grade of B

3. Grade and Retake Policy: Only one gateway or performance review course may be repeated to earn the required grade and that course may only be repeated once. When more than one course can satisfy a gateway requirement, taking a second course from the list will count as a repeat. (Please note that a grade of “W” is considered an attempt and must be repeated).
