Degree: Associate in Science-MRP
Emphasis: Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering

Notes for Students

  • Elective credits should be planned with the help of an engineering advisor and based on the requirements of the specific discipline at the four-year institution you plan to attend.
  • This two-year program requires you to be ready for calculus by the second quarter of the first year. If you were not well prepared by high school math and science, you should plan a three-year program at Centralia College in preparation for transfer to a four-year school.
  • An economics class is recommended.
