Engineering

ENGINEERING PROGRAM AT KAUA'I COMMUNITY COLLEGE! 

The purpose of the Associate in Science in Natural Science (A.S.N.S.) degree is to address the needs of students interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).  Students can use the A.S.N.S. degree to better market their science background or in preparation for transfer to a four-year institution. The A.S.N.S. in Engineering provides a clear pathway to properly prepare students for transfer with core introductory courses and laboratories in chemistry, mathematics, and physics typically required in the first two years of a broad range of Engineering baccalaureate degrees at four-year universities.

Engineering Program Student Learning Outcomes (PSLOs) approved 03/01/2013

  • Analyze data effectively using currently available technology.
  • Communicate scientific ideas and principles clearly and effectively.
  • Analyze and apply fundamental mathematical, physical, and chemical concepts and techniques to scientific issues.
  • Apply fundamental concepts and techniques in their chosen natural science field of student, such as biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, etc.
