Tyler Junior College


The Associate of Science degree in Engineering is a broad plan that meets the needs of the first two years of a four-or five-year engineering degree program. While this plan identifies courses that will apply toward most undergraduate engineering programs, it is important that the student works with a TJC Academic Advisor each semester as well as visit with their transfer University early to make sure that they are on track and taking courses toward their specific specialty of engineering.

Some institutions of higher education in the State of Texas participate in voluntary transfer compacts for Engineering to foster enhanced transfer processes for students pursuing bachelor’s degrees in Civil, Electrical, Industrial, or Mechanical engineering. Students should refer to the following link to access the latest list of participating schools for the voluntary compacts: http://www.thecb.state.tx.us/index.cfm?objectid=C02EE263-D0D4-CB89-63334BECB85CB617. Students interested in obtaining additional information on the voluntary compacts should visit with the Department Chair of Engineering and Physical Sciences.
