Computer Engineering - Arts and Sciences Transfer Recommendation

Associate of Arts

Faculty Advisor: Maria Burness · Phone: 410-386-8526 · Email:

This program has been developed to meet student learning outcomes for the first two years in Computer Engineering as defined by Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty Disciplinary Committee under the auspices of the Associate of Science in Engineering Oversight Council. While an Associate of Arts, Arts and Sciences degree requires 60 credits (29 of which are electives), to meet these outcomes students must take all of the recommended courses (68 credits) below. Students should plan their academic programs after checking the specific program requirements and procedures of the transfer institutions they expect to attend and conferring with an academic advisor.

Most four-year engineering programs will not accept the transfer of any technical, mathematics, computer, or science course in which the student did not earn at least a "C" grade. The receiving four-year institution is not required to accept credits awarded by Carroll Community College via AP, IB, CLEP, and transfer of credit (including transcripted credit) if they do not do so for their own native students. Students are urged to discuss any such circumstances with an academic advisor prior to scheduling their first semester courses.

The Carroll diploma will specify the degree conferred (i.e. Associate of Arts). Students may take 29 credits from any subject to fulfill Carroll graduation requirements and work toward transfer-college course requirements. Arts and Sciences recommendation program titles (i.e. Computer Engineering) will not appear on the Carroll transcript or diploma.
