University Parallel, A.S. - Civil Engineering (TTP)


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs - Alphabetically

Degree: Associate of Science
Major: University Parallel
Area of Emphasis: Civil Engineering

For more information, contact the Math and Science division at 615-230-3261 or at mathscience@volstate.edu.

This pathway is for students planning to continue their education to earn a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering or related field. A civil engineer designs and supervises construction projects such as airports, bridges, channels, dams, railroads, and highways, as well as utilities and other infrastructure projects.  Responsibilities of a civil engineer include estimating costs, determining personnel and material needs, preparing proposals, and establishing completion dates.

Transfer Options
Tennessee Transfer Pathways (TTPs) are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university or select regionally accredited, non-profit Tennessee private colleges and universities to complete their baccalaureate degree. The TTPs also constitute an agreement between community colleges and four-year colleges/universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements. For transfer to other four-year institutions, contact an advisor at the senior institution.  Note: Due to the transferability to a four-year institution, there are to be no course substitutions where a specific course is required in the TTP curriculum guide.  

All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the E-Proficiency Profile (EPP) to meet graduation requirements.  More information can be found at https://www.volstate.edu/graduation/exit-exams.

Footnotes


Students transferring to UTK& UTC should take ECON 2100 (Macroeconomics) and ECON 2200 (Microeconomics). UTM should take ECON 2100 (Macroeconomics).

2 Students transferring to LMU should take a Geology (GEOL) elective and not PHYS 2120.

​​​​​​​3 UTK, TSU, UOM, and LMU do not require MATH 2010: Linear Algebra but do require a 3-hour course in Probability/Statistics. Students transferring to TTU should take MATH 2010: Linear Algebra.

Notes:

Students are strongly encouraged to complete a course in Mechanics of Materials, also known as Strength of Materials, before transferring to a university.

Courses in engineering technology do not fulfill any of the requirements for the Area of Emphasis in Civil Engineering.

Although it is possible to complete the B. S. Degree in Civil Engineering in four semesters after earning the associate’s degree, students typically need five or six semesters to complete the requirements.
