Bio-Systems Engineering (Auburn University Only), A.S.

This plan of study was developed as a guideline for students who plan to transfer to Auburn University and pursue a degree in Bio- Systems Engineering. Students who plan to transfer to an out-of-state or private institution should consult that institution and plan their program of study in consultation with engineering faculty advisors and/or counselors. Some courses in this program are not available at all College locations. Upon completion of courses listed below, the transcript will reflect either an AA or AS degree without reference to the specific program of study.

* ENGINEERING EXCEPTIONS:  For all engineering majors, the AGSC voted to allow the hour requirements in Area II to be reduced from 12 SH to 9 SH and in Area IV to be reduced from 12 SH to 9 SH.  This reduction allowed for additional hours (6 semester hours) to be added to Area V for engineering majors so that required math and science courses could be taken prior to transfer that would meet national engineering accreditation standards (ABET).  The ACCS has adopted this exception.  Engineering students may take 9 hours in Area II, 9 hours in Area IV, and 25 to 29 hours in Area V.
