Associate of Science in Engineering (ASE)

NMC offers an intensive Associate of Science in Engineering transfer degree that is intended to prepare students for transfer to a four-year engineering program. The NMC engineering curriculum parallels engineering programs offered during the first two years at other colleges and universities. Traditionally, these first two years emphasize the tools and theories that provide background for all engineering fields. Students are required to meet with an advisor for completion of this degree.

Other Requirements

  • Complete the ASE degree with a 2.0 or higher cumulative grade point average.
  • Complete a minimum 15 of the 60 credits through NMC classes.


  • Courses with numbers below 100 level do not count toward graduation, but the grades do count toward your cumulative GPA. They may be prerequisites for other courses needed to complete degree or certificate requirements and may add to the total number of credits taken. Review course prerequisites carefully.
  • For elective courses to count toward graduation, a course must be completed with a grade of 1.0 or higher.
