Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering
The following is a degree program designed by a consortium of two-year and four-year colleges in Washington. Students should be aware that baccalaureate institutions may have slightly different requirements for these degrees, and students should consult the transfer institution for exact questions.

Students should complete the entirety of any science sequence at the same school for best transferability. These degrees are not DTA degrees, and there are some general education requirements that students will need to finish upon transfer.

Though this degree does not require such, Clark College students should know that the standard Clark AST degree path has this difference from the Major Related Program (MRP) defined below:
•Clark requires 3 credits of Health-Physical Education coursework.

Students must also meet the residency requirements as established by Clark. While Clark College has approved offering the degree below, Clark students should keep these requirements in mind should their transfer pathways change.

Students completing this Associate of Science will receive the same priority consideration for admission to the baccalaureate institution as they would for completing the direct transfer associate degree and will be given junior status by the receiving institution.

It is critical that you work with an Engineering faculty advisor to ensure your program will give you the maximum benefit when you transfer.
Bioengineering and Chemical Pre-Engineering (AST2)
Distribution Requirements
Courses taken must come from the current ICRC distribution list in order to count as General Education or General University Requirements (GER’s/GUR’s) at the receiving institution. Additional general educational requirements, cultural diversity requirements, and foreign language requirements, as required by the receiving institution, must be met prior to the completion of a baccalaureate degree.

Electives
 
Generic Requirements: The remaining quarter credits should be planned with the help of an advisor based on the requirements of the specific discipline at the baccalaureate institution the student selects to attend.

For Engineering disciplines, these credits should include a design component consistent with ABET accreditation standards, as approved by the advisor.

MRP Requirements: Engineering (14-15 credits)
Select 3 electives as appropriate for intended major and intended baccalaureate institution:

•Computer Programming – 4-5 credits
•Linear Algebra
•Calculus IV (Advanced or Multi-variable Calculus)
•Technical Writing
•Electrical Circuits
•Statics
•Thermodynamics
•Chemical Process, Principles and Calculations
•Biology for Science Majors I + labs
•Biology for Science Majors II + labs
•Organic Chemistry 2 + labs

Clark College equivalents: Required at Clark: MATH&254 (5 cr.) – Calculus IV Other electives as advised dependent on transfer institution.
Total Required Credits: 90-103
Program Outcomes
Program outcomes are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define what students should know or be able to do by the end of a certificate or degree at Clark College. After successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
  • Analyze, interpret, and evaluate works and ideas in the Humanities within appropriate global and historical contexts. (GE)
  • Analyze patterns of power, privilege, and inequality.
  • Analyze and solve multi-step problems using techniques through single-variable calculus.
  • Apply scientific and technological knowledge and methodologies to creatively solve technological or scientific problems.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the derivative as an instantaneous rate of change and the definite integral as a limit of a sum.
  • Apply fundamental principles and relationships from the Natural Sciences to analyze technological or scientific problems.
  • Acquire scientific and technological information from appropriate sources to examine issues, claims or situations.
  • Communicate with various audiences using a variety of methods. (GE)
  • Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information. (GE)
  • Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences. (GE)
  • Demonstrate progress toward healthier behaviors. (GE)
