Electrical and Computer Engineering (AST2)

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

The following is a degree program designed by a consortium of two-year and four-year colleges in Washington. Students should be aware that baccalaureate institutions may have slightly different requirements for these degrees, and students should consult the transfer institution for exact questions.

Students should complete the entirety of any science sequence at the same school for best transferability. These degrees are not DTA degrees, and there are some general education requirements that students will need to finish upon transfer.
Though this degree does not require such, Clark College students should know that the standard Clark AST degree path has this difference from the Major Related Program defined below:

  • Clark requires 3 credits of Health-Physical Education coursework.

Students must also meet the residency requirements as established by Clark. While Clark College has approved offering the degree below, Clark students should keep these requirements in mind should their transfer pathways change.

Students completing this Associate of Science will receive the same priority consideration for admission to the baccalaureate institution as they would for completing the direct transfer associate degree and will be given junior status by the receiving institution.

Generic Requirements

Courses taken must come from the current ICRC distribution list in order to count as General Education or General University Requirements (GER’s/GUR’s) at the receiving institution. Additional general educational requirements, cultural diversity requirements, and foreign language requirements, as required by the receiving institution, must be met prior to the completion of a baccalaureate degree.

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:

  • 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)

  • Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information. (GE)

  • Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences. (GE)

  • Interpret the human experience, within appropriate global and historical contexts, through evaluation, analysis, creation, or performance. (GE)

  • Analyze patterns of power, privilege, and inequity in the United States. (GE)

  • Demonstrate progress toward healthier behaviors. (GE)

  • Apply communication theory to demonstrate effective oral communication skills.(GE)

  • Analyze and interpret quantitative information presented verbally, graphically, numerically, and/or symbolically. (GE)

  • Apply a method of scientific inquiry, valid to the natural sciences, to evaluate claims about the natural world. (GE)

  • Demonstrate and clearly explain an effective strategy to solve a quantitative problem. (GE)

  • Analyze and solve multi-step problems using techniques through single-variable calculus.

  • Demonstrate understanding of the derivative as an instantaneous rate of change and the definite integral as a limit of a sum.

  • Acquire scientific and technological information from appropriate sources to examine issues, claims or situations.

  • 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.
