Concentration in Computer Engineering (AST2)(Plan Code: EECCEAS, Subplan Code: COMPTRENGR)

Academic Plans, known as programs, include an overview description and a summary of program requirements. You can search the online catalog via the Academic Plan links on the right for a desired program or a specific course information. 

Computer Engineering Transfer Degree AST2 requires students to complete minimum of 95 quarter hours of transferable credit with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00. In order for a student to be junior ready in Computer Engineering at specific transfer institutions, there are additional credits beyond the AST2 credit requirements for this degree that a student need to consider. Please consult your faculty adviser to learn more and to develop your education plan (

Program Outcomes

Program outcomes are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define what students should know or be able to do by the end of a certificate or degree at Clark College. After successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate progress toward healthier behaviors. (GE)
  • Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information. (GE)
  • Articulate well-considered ideas and written claims to an academic audience, using effective rhetorical techniques, properly credited evidence, and a command of Standard English. (GE)
  • Interpret the human experience, within appropriate global and historical contexts, through evaluation, analysis, creation, or performance. (GE)
  • Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences. (GE)
  • Analyze patterns of power, privilege, and inequity in the United States. (GE)
  • Analyze and interpret quantitative information presented verbally, graphically, numerically, and/or symbolically. (GE)
  • Demonstrate and clearly explain an effective strategy to solve a quantitative problem. (GE)
  • Demonstrate understanding of the derivative as an instantaneous rate of change and the definite integral as a limit of a sum.
  • Apply fundamental principles and relationships from the Natural Sciences to analyze technological or scientific problems.
  • Apply scientific and technological knowledge and methodologies to creatively solve technological or scientific problems.
  • Acquire scientific and technological information from appropriate sources to examine issues, claims or situations.
  • Analyze and solve multi-step problems using techniques through single-variable calculus.
