The A.S. degree in Engineering enables students to transfer into a B.S. Engineering program with potentially the first two years of a bachelor’s degree completed. Some of the courses you will take at RCTC depend upon the specific area of engineering you are interested in and the university to which you intend to transfer.
Take the calculus and physics courses as early as possible. In general, build your schedule around the technical courses and then work in the general courses.
Once you know which discipline of engineering (mechanical, electrical, etc.) you intend to specialize in, you can take the courses needed for that area. If you know the university to which you intend to transfer, you can select exactly the courses needed at that university. For the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and Minnesota State University - Mankato, specific plans are available following the links below.

Transfer Advising for specific universities
General education courses
There are two choices for the engineering transfer student. One is to do the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MNTC). The other is to take the specific general education courses required by the university to which you intend to transfer. Click General Education to see a discussion of these two possibilities.
