In order for the workplace learning credit to be counted for the degree requirement, the learning experience must be pre-approved by the department, and an appropriate faculty member must supervise the work.

There are a number of prerequisites for this program, so we invite you to meet with an STLCC advisor or program coordinator for up-to-date information about this program and how it can fit with your goals.

Course offerings depend on adequate enrollment.

Please note: Credits earned in STLCC’s Engineering Technology AAS, CS and CP programs generally do not transfer to engineering bachelor degree programs. If your career goal is to be an engineer, please consider STLCC’s Engineering Science AS degree. Credits earned as part of STLCC’s Engineering Science AS degree transfer to universities nationwide, and provide a strong foundation for future study in a variety of engineering disciplines a fraction of the cost of a public university.
