We offer the first two years of a typical four-year program leading to the Bachelor's Degree in Engineering. Because of the proximity of San Diego State University (SDSU), most Cuyamaca College engineering students complete their education at SDSU, and our program is therefore most closely linked to theirs. However, our courses are accepted in transfer at most University of California and Cal State schools, including the two Cal Polys.

We offer Associate in Science (AS) degrees and Certificates of Achievement in each of the following 3 disciplines: 1) Civil Engineering, 2) Electrical and Computer Engineering, and 3) Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
While the bachelor's degree is usually the minimum needed to practice as an engineer, the Associate in Science Degree in Engineering will permit an individual to find work in most engineering firms as an engineering aide. The AS degrees offered by Cuyamaca College contain all engineering courses required for transfer to SDSU, plus Exercise Science and a few additional engineering courses. However, SDSU requires more General Education credits than are required by the AS degree program.
The Certificate of Achievement requirements contain a lighter emphasis on advanced math and physics than do the AS degrees, but more emphasis on applied coursework. Also, the Certificate of Achievement does not require any General Education or Exercise Science courses. The Certificate of Achievement in Engineering will permit an individual to work in most engineering firms as an engineering technician.
