The Engineering program at East Central College offers students the opportunity to complete the first two years of engineering and general education classes before transferring to their chosen university. Our students may transfer to any 4 year engineering program but they benefit from two articulation agreements, one with Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) in Rolla and the other with SouthEast Missouri State University (SEMO).
The Associate of Science degree includes the basic physics and calculus classes, as well as upper level science and engineering electives. Our students participate in classroom design and robotics projects. ECC awards the AS degree allowing students to focus on any of 15 different fields of engineering. Students may earn their BS in Engineering at their transfer institution.
The AA in Engineering Technology (SEMO articulation) is another degree offered. This program includes basic calculus, physics and chemistry classes as well as hands on mechanical and electrical classes in state of the art facilities. Students may earn their BS in Engineering Technology at their transfer institution.
Our students have the opportunity to interact through group projects, field trips and participation in the Engineering Club.
