The Big Bend engineering degrees provide potential transfer students with a number of benefits. Each of the two Major Related Program (MRP) engineering degrees ensure that students will transfer basically anywhere in the state of Washington ready to enter the third-year of an engineering program. The MRP degrees also supports the extension of financial aid eligibility because the degrees require a high number of courses after calculus and engineering physics. Last, Big Bend students benefit from not having to relocate prematurely, smaller class sizes, lower tuition rates, as well as extensive tutoring and faculty support. Our STEM Center provides a wide variety of math, science and engineering tutoring support throughout the week.

Specified Electives (minimum 30 credits)
This section may include additional additional breadth requirements such as humanities/social sciences or prerequisites to your math and science courses. We encourage you to comprise this section with engineering (ENGR) courses, upper level math (200 level) or prerequisites for your intended bachelor’s degree. It is highly recommended you work with your Big Bend advisor to determine the best combination of courses to fulfill the requirements of this section.

This section is intended for engineering students not able to complete the MRP or students that may be seeking a degree in engineering technology at Central, Eastern or Western Washington University. Unlike the MRP, this degree provides students the to ability to take algebra-based General Physics (PHYS& 114, 115, 116) and incorporate professional-technical courses that have been approved by the transferring university.

Develop Your Plan

Once you know what engineering area you’re interested in, it’s time to start planning how to get there!  This section provides a variety of PDF’s for you to review on your own or with your advisors from Big Bend and the university you wish to transfer to.   If there is something you need but don’t see, let us know.  We are here to help!

COURSE CALENDAR
An overview of quarterly offerings for math, science and engineering courses required to complete the AS-T and MRP degrees.  It does not include the schedule for humanities, social sciences or other basic and breadth subjects.  Courses marked with an asterisk (*) are pre-requisites to MRP degree courses. 
COURSE DESCRIPTIONS
A brief overview of the course content, including prerequisite information for all engineering courses.
PREREQUISITE FLOW CHART
A snapshot of math and science courses required to take engineering (ENGR) courses.
COST COMPARISON FOR A THIRD YEAR
When money matters, it’s good to have the numbers already summarized.  Take a look at the potential savings for completing your AS-T MRP at Big Bend versus transferring to a number universities.  Compare tuition rates, basic costs including tuition/books/fees and room/board, and how living at home with your parents/guardians for another year could mean THOU$AND$ in $aving$.  
ELECTRICAL EDUCATION PLAN 
This is a three-year sample course plan for students interested in electrical or computer engineering pathways.
MECHANICAL EDUCATION PLAN
This is a three-year sample course plan for students interested in mechanical, civil, aeronautical and material science engineering pathways.

Prepare to Transfer

The links and resources below are intended to assist you with researching engineering pathways at a variety of public and private universities to develop an education plan in order to best meet the requirements of your intended bachelor’s degree. Please ensure you are regularly communicating with your Big Bend and transfer university advisors as requirements for certification (acceptance into a major) are subject to change.
