Engineering is the application of scientific and mathematical principles to solve problems. Engineers invent new systems and improve existing systems while also considering practical limitations such as cost, schedule, and safety.

Kaskaskia College's Associate of Engineering Science Degree (AES) provides students with the first two years of study toward a bachelor of science degree in engineering at a four-year college or university. Students take fundamental courses common to most engineering disciplines and continue their studies in specialized areas after transferring. Kaskaskia College has 2+2 transfer agreements in place with several surrounding universities in the region.

Kaskaskia College's Engineering Program has a history of success. Many of our students are awarded engineering scholarships at their transfer universities, assume leadership roles in student organizations, and obtain lucrative careers within their engineering discipline after graduation. 

Prospective students interested in engineering science should possess the following:

  • A high school diploma or high school equivalency
  • A strong background and interest in math and science
