About the Program

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

Carroll’s A.S.E. in Electrical Engineering degree program 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:

  • 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 A.S.E. is a Maryland statewide articulation agreement based on outcomes, not courses. Each A.S.E., including ours, was developed around a set of critical objectives that all students must meet in the first two years of an engineering program.  

STEM Scholars

Carroll’s STEM Scholars honors 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 4-year institution after completion of their Associate degree at Carroll Community College. Apply to become a STEM Scholar. 

Advisory Board 

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.
