Associate of Science Degree

Available at: Heritage Campus

An electrical engineering student is working on a lab in the classroom.

Program Overview

The Computer Science, Engineering and Advanced Technology Department at Del Mar College offers an Associate in Science degree in Electrical Engineering. This program is intended for those students who ultimately seek a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Electrical Engineering at an upper-level college or university.

Electrical engineering students at Del Mar College will complete the math sequence of Calculus I, II, and Differential Equations. Students will also complete the sequence of Calculus-based University Physics I and II. Students will take fundamental engineering coursework that will act as the baseline for their future studies. Due to the number of advanced math, science and engineering courses necessary for an engineering degree, this degree plan does not meet the 42 semester credit hour core requirement for associate degrees in Texas (AA, AS, AAT (Core)).


Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing of electrical equipment, such as electric motors, radar and navigation systems, communications systems, and power generation equipment. Electrical Engineering is a challenging and rewarding field in which you will apply math usually limited to theory for practical applications like control systems and quantum mechanics. Engineers work as a team and possess great skills communicating with others. Engineers are also often practical, innovative, creative, and curious about how things work.

You will enter into a very prestigious career and can expect to be right on the cutting edge of technology. Since engineers are often responsible for directly creating a new product or service, they are in high demand in the corporate world, and they command fairly high salaries.


Students planning to continue at a senior college should consult an advisor concerning degree requirements of the college to which transfer is intended.
