Engineering Transfer Degrees

​​E​xplore our diverse range of Engineering degree pathways!

If you want to pursue a bachelor’s degree in engineering, you can earn an Engineering associate of science degree for transfer. Dallas College has articulation (transfer) agreements in place with several public universities in Texas for transfer into their engineering bachelor's programs as well as Field of Study degrees that should transfer to most public universities in Texas.

Our programs offer a unique combination of technical expertise and well-rounded education:


Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles and methods to define and solve problems in medicine and biology. Students choose the biomedical engineering field to be of service to people, for the challenge of working with living systems and to apply advanced technology to healthcare delivery. Focus areas include biomedical, bioenvironmental, bioprocessing, or biomechanical.

Many graduates go on to medical school or graduate school, but others will work in consulting, government agencies, biomedical firms, or even technical sales.

Chemical Engineering

Combine several fields of science (chemistry, physics and biology) with engineering design principles to create new chemical and biochemical processes–usually in the form of chemical reactions or separations. These techniques can be used to convert raw materials like sand, metal ore, crude oil, and natural gas into all of the products we use every day. Graduates may work in the petrochemical industry/plants, research and development, or go on to graduate school or medical school.

Civil Engineering

Work on the design, installation and maintenance of the infrastructure systems essential for development of modern societies and coastal subsidence projects crucial for the resilience of Louisiana and other coastal regions. Sub-disciplines include structures, water resources, transportation, geotechnical, and geodesy. Graduates may work for structural design firms or the large-scale petrochemical facilities but often work for government agencies such as the Department of Transportation or U.S. Army Corp. of Engineers.

​​​​Computer Engineering and Software Engineering

Create, design or improve computer hardware and/or software by combining knowledge from the fields of electrical engineering and computer science. Computer engineers work in the fast-paced and dynamic field of computer technology and might be involved in any aspect of computer design, including circuit design, supercomputing, microprocessor design, personal computing, chip design, embedded systems, sensor design, robotics and more.

​​​​Electronics Engineering Technology

Electronic Systems Engineering Technology (ESET) prepares graduates for careers in electronic product and system development across a diverse range of industries that include the medical, computer, power, automotive, oil and gas, information/communication technologies, and quality of life sectors. While graduates of the program receive a rigorous technical education and take engineering and technology positions within industry, they are also well prepared for positions in technical sales and project management.

​​​​Industrial Engineering

Apply engineering design principles to create or improve any type of system. Industrial engineers find ways to eliminate wastefulness in production processes and devise efficient systems that integrate workers, machines, materials, information and energy to make a product or provide a service.

​​​​Mechanical and Pre-Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, integrate and test various mechanical and thermal devices, including sensors, tools, engines and machines. Using engineering analysis and design tools, they solve problems, diagnose and fix equipment failures, develop and test prototypes, analyze results and adapt designs as necessary. Modern mechanical engineers play a key role in the ongoing digital transformation across industrial sectors and demonstrate versatility by covering tasks handled by other engineering disciplines.
