Associate of Science in Engineering Fundamentals
The Associate of Science in Engineering Fundamentals (ASEF) program is Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s latest offering for aspiring engineering students who want world-class educational opportunities that meet their needs in new and innovative ways.
Through this program, you can complete your associate's degree online with an opportunity to apply to an Embry-Riddle residential campus in Florida or Arizona to continue your studies and earn your bachelor’s degree. Embry-Riddle professors and program development experts carefully researched every aspect of this offering, creating a curriculum that features short nine-week terms which ultimately result in the 65 credit hours necessary to obtain your degree.
In addition to meeting the Worldwide Campus admissions requirements, applicants for admission into the AS in Engineering Fundamentals degree program must:
- Complete the English and Math Skills Assessments prior to admission to determine academic preparedness for entry into ENGL123 English Composition and MATH 241 Calculus I.
- Current high school students and recent graduates under the age of 20 must meet established admissions requirements and demonstrate a 3.0 high school CGPA, with coursework that reflects 4 years of college preparatory mathematics and 2 years of college preparatory science, including a laboratory science.
- Transfer applicants must meet established admissions requirements and demonstrate a 2.5 cumulative grade point average (CGPA); transfer credit deemed equivalent to demonstrate academic preparedness for immediate entry into ENGL 123 English Composition and MATH 241 Calculus I, will be considered for admission into the program. Skills Assessment scores will be used for advising purposes if English and Math transfer credit demonstrates academic preparedness for admission into the program.
Students who fail to satisfy the guidelines for full admission may be considered for conditional admission under circumstances determined by the Admissions Office. A written petition for admission, current resume and other supporting documentation may be requested for consideration of admission. Exceptions will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
Current Worldwide students requesting a change of program to the AS in Engineering Fundamentals must complete the English and Math Skills Assessments and demonstrate successful completion of at least 12 credit hours of Embry-Riddle coursework, achieving a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average (CGPA). Exceptions will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
