Charge up your career as an Electrical Engineer


Small class sizes, state-of-the-art labs and skilled faculty make Carroll's Electrical Engineering program a great career path choice.

Engineers develop and design solutions to problems through the application of mathematics and science. Electrical engineering deals with electricity, electro-magnetism and electronics. It also covers power, control systems, telecommunications and signal processing.

Carroll’s A.S.E. degree in Electrical Engineering is accredited by the Maryland Higher Education Commission. Our higher education partners include the Maryland Association of Community Colleges, Maryland Independent College and University Association, Maryland Higher Education Commission, Morgan State University and the University System of Maryland.

Why Carroll for your A.S.E. in Electrical Engineering:

  • ASE* graduates are prepared for junior-level work at a transfer institution.
  • Alternative path to a B.S. in Engineering is more accessible (cost, location, schedule).
  • Small classes promote rapport and connection between students and faculty.

*The ASE is a Maryland statewide articulation agreement based on outcomes, not courses. Each ASE was developed around a set of critical objectives that all students must meet in the first two years of an engineering program. ASE graduates will have an approved block of credit transfer to a 4-year program in the same field (e.g., EE to EE) at a partnering institution.


Carroll's STEM Scholars annual program is designed for motivated high school and college students who want to pursue opportunities in science, technology,engineering or mathematics and transfer to a four-year institution after completion of their associate degree at Carroll Community College. 
Apply to become a STEM Scholar.


Carroll faculty members are scholars, researchers and distinguished leaders who are selected for their academic and industry credentials as well as for their teaching abilities. 

Faculty Spotlight

Tricia Crossett
Program Director, Engineering
Associate Professor, Mathematics and Engineering

Professor Crossett has a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Southern California. Upon completing graduate-level coursework in aerodynamics, spacecraft dynamics and complex analysis, she worked for McDonnell Douglas Aerospace in Huntington Beach, California doing aerodynamic analysis. She earned her M.A. in Curriculum Development with an emphasis in Mathematics Education from UMBC. She began as an adjunct faculty member at Carroll and is now a full-time Associate Professor of Mathematics and Engineering.

Jane Jones
Adjunct Professor, Mathematics and Engineering

Jane Jones came to Maryland to work as an electrical engineer at The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory after earning a Bachelor and Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University. As a software engineer at APL her tasks included writing software to simulate the communications between a satellite and a ground terminal. While working as an adjunct at Towson University, she earned a Master of Science in Mathematics Education from Towson. She is now full-time faculty at Carroll Community College. 

Advisory Boards

Our curriculum is designed and continuously reviewed by an advisory board of industry experts and business leaders, ensuring the program meets all current skill and knowledge requirements. You can visit our  Advisory Boards page to see the list of Business and Accounting Advisory Board members, as well as advisory board members for our other CCC programs.

Carroll offers an exceptional education at an extraordinary value. If you start your Electrical Engineering education by earning an ASE degree at Carroll, you'll pay less than half of what you would pay for the first two years of a typical four-year college. 

What does this program cost?

Carroll’s Associate of Science in Electrical Engineering consists of four semesters of full-time study. You can complete an associate degree for less than the cost of one year at a 4-year college or university.

Where can you go?


The Associate of Science in Electrical Engineering degree provides the opportunity for a seamless transfer to the following Maryland state and private colleges for an Engineering major: Capitol College, Frostburg State University, The Johns Hopkins University, Loyola University Maryland, Morgan State University, University of Maryland College Park and University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

Upon student acceptance by a participating 4-year institution, credits earned for the A.S. in Engineering will transfer as a block, without review of individual courses, and the transferring student will enter the receiving institution as a junior. 

Electrical engineers design, develop and test new electrical equipment. They work jobs covering a broad range of technologies, from household appliances, construction lighting and wiring, telecommunication systems, power stations and satellite communications.

Graduates with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering earn starting salaries around $60,000.


Carroll has transfer agreements with virtually every public college and university in Maryland, as well as many other schools in Maryland and across the country. Learn more about transferring your courses to a different institution or explore Transfer Agreements by area of study.

Are there any recommended additional classes I should take to transfer?

Students transferring to the University of Maryland College Park, in addition to the listed curriculum, should take CHEM-134, Advanced General Chemistry for Engineering (course offered Winter term only).

What’s the minimum grade I need to earn the A.S. degree?

To receive the degree, students must earn a minimum grade of C in all engineering, mathematics, computer and science courses.
