Evergreen Valley College offers a two-year lower-division Engineering Program that allows students to transfer to any four-year California College or University offering a degree in Engineering. The lower division Engineering Core Courses recommended by the Engineering Liaison Committee of the State of California have been coordinated between community colleges and the four-year colleges and universities throughout California. The Associate in Arts and the Associate in Science Degrees are available for Engineering students. The engineering degree programs consist of the Engineering Core courses plus General Education courses that satisfy graduation requirements. It is recommended that students complete as much of their General Education requirements as possible. A grade of “C” or better in each major course is required for this degree.


Program Learning Outcomes 

  • Design and conduct experiments as well as analyze and interpret data
  • Design a system, component, or process as per customer specifications
  • Identify potential changes in behavior and properties of materials as they are altered and influenced by manufacturing processes and loading conditions
  • Assess the safety and environmental consequences of a proposed design
  • Demonstrate an awareness of the human and social ramifications of technological solutions in a global and societal context
  • Work and communicate effectively, either independently or in a team, to solve technical problems using engineering principles
  • Demonstrate an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

What is a Program Map?

A program map is a suggested semester-by-semester plan to help you complete the courses required for a particular degree or certificate. It is based on the major sheet for the particular degree or certificate you are interested in. It includes courses required for the major, general education and any necessary electives. 

A program map is a representation of the major sheet. It includes the specific specialty courses in a major, general education courses and any necessary electives. 

What is a Major Sheet?

A major sheet includes a description of the program you are interested in, what you can expect to learn once you have completed the program (Program Learning Outcomes) and the specific specialty courses you will need to complete within a major.
