Stem Cluster

The Stem Cluster focuses on academic courses that will transfer while allowing the flexibility to explore options in a stem major. For optimal advisement, a specific stem major should be declared no later than the end of the first semester. The student and advisor should review the requirements of the university to which the student plans to transfer.

The Stem Cluster includes these majors:


Computer Science

Information Technology

Computer Networking and Information Technology

Information Assurance


Aerospace Engineering

Biological Engineering

Chemical Engineering

Civil Engineering

Computer Engineering

Electrical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering

Polymer Science Engineering

Industrial Engineering

Manufacturing Engineering

Geological Engineering

Biological Science



Computational Biology

Marine Biology

Health Sciences

Developmental courses required as pre-requisite for a college level course do not count toward graduation.

In addition, students must prove computer competency as defined in the catalog for an Associate Degree.

Curricula are designed as guides for curriculum planning. Consult the University of your Choice for specific transfer requirements.
