My Academic Plan

Courses are displayed to show the fastest path to your degree and should be completed in the order listed. If you are unable to complete all courses listed in a semester, complete as many courses in this sequence as your schedule allows. If you have questions or concerns about your MAP, please see your Pathways Advisor.

There are multiple ways to pursue a degree in engineering. It is very important to work with your Pathways Advisor to develop the best academic plan for where you are starting and where you are hoping to transfer.

For students who want to complete a degree in civil engineering and transfer to the University of Colorado and Colorado State University and are college chemistry and calculus ready, the AES in Civil Engineering is the most direct path to a Bachelor’s degree in this field.  It is recommended that you meet with your advisor before selecting a pathway in engineering.

Program Description

This program is designed for students transferring to a four-year university to complete their BS degree in Civil Engineering. It allows students to complete the first two years of the BS degree at the community college. Students explore calculus, physics, and engineering applications. Civil engineers design, build, and maintain the foundation for our modern society – our buildings, roads and bridges, drinking water and energy systems, sea ports and airports, and the infrastructure for a cleaner environment, to name just a few. Civil engineering is an exciting profession because at the end of the day you can see the results of your work, whether this is a completed bridge, a high-rise building, a subway station, or a hydroelectric dam. This program introduces students to calculus, physics, and engineering applications and it includes courses that are design to transfer to Colorado State University and University of Colorado in order to continue studies in civil engineering. This is a designed career pathway in civil engineering. The Associate of Engineering Science (AES) degree prepares students to complete the second half of a Bachelor of Science (BS) in civil engineering at a four-year university, specifically Colorado State University and University of Colorado.

The AES in Civil Engineering requires you to enter prepared to take Calculus I (MAT 2410) and General College Chemistry I (CHE 1111). See an advisor to discuss testing out options, review transfer university requirements, and to develop an academic plan that works for you.
