A.A. Pathway to a Bachelor's in Engineering

These transfer GPS plans prepare students to pursue a four-year degree in engineering at a Florida public university or Florida College System (FCS) institution that offers an engineering bachelor's degree. Students are encouraged to complete the recommended transfer GPS that will support their intended baccalaureate degree program.

An engineering degree can be part of the academic preparation for many rewarding careers, including, but not limited to, working as an aeronautic engineer, aircraft engineer, architectural engineer, biomedical engineer, chemical engineer, civil engineer, computer hardware engineers, electrical engineer, environmental engineer, industrial engineer, manufacturing engineer, marine engineer and naval architect, mechanical engineer, nuclear engineer, petroleum engineer or software developer, software engineer, or system engineer.

The courses listed in the engineering plans are common prerequisites which are required for an engineering major at the university level. For more information on common prerequisites, check the statewide advising manual at floridashines.org. The courses listed in the transfer GPS were selected to meet specific course requirements as either general education requirements or electives within Eastern Florida State College's A.A. degree program.

EFSC has also established articulation agreements with the University of Central Florida (UCF) and Florida Institute of Techology (Florida Tech) to enable EFSC students to transfer into their specific engineering programs.

In the case of UCF, there are links on this page to nine different UCF engineering pathways so be sure to choose the one that fits your academic goals.

Students interested in the Florida Tech transfer opportunity will follow the general A.A. engineering pathway and work with the program's advisor to develop a program plan and explore the potential to earn $10,000 per year Florida Tech transfer scholarships.

Remember that each transfer GPS is a guideline and does not guarantee admission to a college or university. Requirements may vary by institution and can change each year. Students are encouraged to consult an EFSC advisor or check with the advising or admissions office at the intended transfer institution.
