Engineering Pathway, A.S.

Return to: Computer Science and Engineering   

Engineering is the creative application of scientific principles to the design, development, construction or operation of structures, machines, apparatus, manufacturing processes or works-using them singly or in combination.

Engineering transforms scientific discoveries into products that improve the way the world works and that make our lives safer, healthier and more productive. Engineering is an attractive career option for those who enjoy building or repairing items or designing new products, games or tools. Industry demand is high, with job prospects in branches of engineering continuing to grow. Civil, environmental, biomedical and software specialties are leading the pack. An additional draw is reflected in surveys that consistently indicate engineers enjoy high levels of job satisfaction.

Perimeter College provides a strong foundation for students wanting to pursue engineering and the college’s Regents Engineering Pathway Program paves the way for its students to continue their studies at respected universities.

Degree Requirements

Areas A-E of the Core Curriculum (42 Credit Hours)

See 1410 Core Curriculum Requirements  in the Undergraduate Catalog. 

  • Area A: Essential Skills 
  • Area B: Institutional Foundations 
  • Area C: Humanities and Fine Arts 
  • Area D: Natural and Computational Sciences 
  • Area E: Social Science 


Area A

Required course:

Area D

Required courses:

Area F: Courses Appropriate to the Pathway (18 Credit Hours)

  • Principles of Physics I and II and Principles of Chemistry I are strongly recommended in Area D or Area F. PHYS 2211/PHYS 2211L is a prerequisite for ENGR 2605.
  • All separate lecture and lab course combinations (e.g., BIOL 2107 and BIOL 2107L; CHEM 1211 and CHEM 1211K) are commonly offered as a combined course at the Georgia State University Atlanta campus (e.g., BIOL 2107K; CHEM 1211K. The combined (K) courses and separate lecture and lab (L) courses cover the same subject matter and are considered equivalent courses.

Carry Over from Areas A and D (2 Credit Hours)

  • Students who take four-hour mathematics courses in both Areas A and D carry two hours over to Area F.
