Program Information

Students may take the first half of a bachelor’s degree in engineering at Anoka-Ramsey Community College. Coursework transfers to four-year baccalaureate engineering programs. Students should plan a program beyond the minimum degree requirements listed in order to transfer into the junior year of their engineering program. For assistance in program planning, or to explore additional transfer options, students should schedule a time to meet with an academic advisor. This degree may transfer in part or in its entirety to baccalaureate institutions. Students should meet with a representative of the transfer institution when planning their program. 

Developmental Courses

Preparatory courses may be needed by some students in the areas of English, mathematics or reading. Courses numbered less than 1000 will not apply toward this degree. 

  • By completing this program, students will achieve the following learning goals:

    1. Comprehend and apply fundamental engineering concepts;
    2. Understand and apply the engineering design process;
    3. Present clear and accurate solutions with respect to mathematics and units of measure.
    • A minimum of 60 semester credits numbered 1000 or above.
    • A minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 in courses numbered 1000 or above at ARCC.
    • Satisfy residency requirements. See page 27 of the Anoka-Ramsey Academic Catalog
    • Completion of specific degree requirements.
    • To receive your diploma, you must apply to graduate.
    • The requirements of this program are subject to change without notice.

    NOTE: Students are encouraged to contact an academic advisor at 763-433-1230 for course planning assistance and information about transfer credit evaluation and transfer options.
