Associate of Science
Start a career that will expose you to emerging technologies, let you use your hands, and prepare you for high-paying jobs or further education.
If you opt for an associate degree in electrical engineering, you will spend your first two years on campus completing general education requirements along with first- and second-year engineering classes. After that you will be eligible to receive an associate degree. If you wish to continue, you can earn a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from the University of Arkansas while completing all your coursework on the UAFS campus.
Students in this program may work as:
- Electrical Test Engineers
- Electrical Design Engineers
- Electronics Engineers
- Power-distribution Engineers
- Power-transmission Engineers
Thanks to a unique partnership between UAFS and the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville,
students who complete an Associate of Science in engineering at UAFS can continue
on to complete a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from UA, taking all
their classes, taught by UA faculty, on the UAFS campus.
Special Application Procedure
Before beginning the bachelor's degree program, students must be admitted to UA-Fayetteville.
