Associate in Engineering Science (A.E.S.)
The Associate in Engineering Science (AES) degree is designed to provide the student with the general education, math, science and engineering courses required by the College of Engineering (COE) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) campus. Students who complete this sequence and are transferring to the COE at UIUC will be able to transfer as juniors. While the general education requirements listed will satisfy the requirements of most senior institutions, students should identify as early as possible the institutions to which they will be applying for transfer to determine the specific requirements of those institutions for the freshman and sophomore years. The sequence of courses should be carefully planned with assistance from an advisor with a specific four-year institution in mind.
Note: The general education requirements listed below do not include all the courses prescribed by the IAI Core General Education Curriculum. Be aware that completing the AES Degree requirements will not automatically meet the general education requirements of most public and private colleges and universities in Illinois. The courses in this degree will lead to junior status in your major field, but students may need to complete additional general education requirements to officially achieve junior status at the senior institution of their choice.
