Associate in Arts Pathway to a Bachelor's in Aerospace Engineering at UCF

This transfer GPS prepares students to pursue a four-year degree in aerospace engineering at the University of Central Florida through the Engineering Articulated Program (EAP). This is an articulation agreement that entitles Eastern Florida State College (EFSC) students to earn credits that will be transferable toward an engineering baccalaureate degree at UCF while they are in the process of completing the appropriate engineering common program prerequisite courses and earning an Associate in Arts degree at EFSC. Eastern Florida students successfully completing this A.A. and Common Program Prerequisites through this program are automatically accepted into the engineering program of their choice after being admitted to the University of Central Florida.

EFSC Articulated Pre-Major In Engineering A.A. Degree
  1. To participate in the EAP, Eastern Florida State College students must:
    1. Officially select the EAP and the A.A. UCF articulated pathway by consulting with an EFSC advisor,
    2. Seek advisement from a qualified advisor for the EAP each semester before registering for classes,
    3. Have selected a specific engineering major by the completion of the first year of the A.A. EAP
    4. Graduate from EFSC with the A.A. degree, with the UCF articulated pathway courses completed
  2. Acceptance of Engineering-related Courses taken at Eastern Florida State College: Up to seven courses may be used toward the Eastern Florida State College A.A., articulated pathway and, depending on the engineering major chosen, toward an engineering baccalaureate degree at UCF: EGS 1006, Introduction to the Engineering Profession (UCF course number EGN 1006C or equivalent); EGN 1007, Engineering Concepts and Methods (UCF course number EGN 1007C); EGN 2312, Engineering Analysis-Statics (UCF course number EGN 3310 or equivalent); EGN 2322, Engineering Analysis-Dynamics (UCF course number EGN 3321 or equivalent); EGN 2440, Probability and Statistics for Engineers (UCF course number STA 3032 or equivalent); EGS 2613, Engineering Economic Analysis (UCF course number EGN 3613); and EGS 2004, Electrical Networks (UCF course number EEL 3004).

NOTE: Prerequisites for all engineering courses must be satisfied prior to enrollment in those courses.

Students are encouraged to consult an EFSC advisor and check with the advising or admissions office at the intended transfer institution.

Possible Concentrations:  Aerospace Engineering
Potential Careers: Aerospace engineer, Power engineer, Energy and System engineer
Meta-Major: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Foreign Language Requirement: Students must demonstrate competency in a foreign language at a level equal to two years of high school world language (sequential, in the same language) or American Sign Language coursework. This is pursuant to F.S. 1007.262.

Civic Literacy Competency: Per F.S. 1007.25 (4) - Beginning with students initially entering a Florida College System institution or state university in the 2018-2019 school year and thereafter, each student must demonstrate competency in civic literacy.

Important Notes:

  • This pathway is for planning purposes only; it does not guarantee admission to a college or university other than UCF. Following the suggested course sequence for completion will better prepare you for transfer and acceptance.
  • Some courses have prerequisites that may increase the time and credits required to complete the degree. You may complete A.A. requirements prior to completing this pathway, which may impact your financial aid.
  • Contact UCF no later than the completion of 30 credit hours regarding admission requirements and deadlines.
  • Courses identified by PATHWAY COURSE are recommended or required for admission into the bachelor’s degree.
  • If you qualify and are eligible for Federal Financial Aid, you may only receive funding assistance for up to 60 credit hours toward your Associate in Arts degree. Please see your Assigned Advisor to discuss loan options In excess of 60.
