Engineering Program

Snow College continues to offer the Associate of Pre-Engineering (APE) degree to students who plan to transfer to a university and pursue a baccalaureate degree in any of the traditional fields of engineering. This two-year degree requires an emphasis of coursework in engineering, mathematics, and physical science, with fewer general education requirements than the Associate of Science (AS) or the Associate of Arts (AA) degree. It is anticipated that a student will also earn an AS degree while at Snow College, but additional coursework will be needed to complete the balance of general education requirements for that degree.

Students who complete an emphasis in engineering at Snow College will be expected to demonstrate that they have a working knowledge of the theories and principles of physics in the areas of Newtonian mechanics, gravitation, electricity and magnetism, wave motion and physical optics; are acquainted with standard methods of mathematical analysis including trigonometry and analytic geometry, differential and integral calculus, matrices and linear algebra, and the solutions to differential equations; understand the role of chemistry in our physical and biological environment as it pertains to atomic and molecular structure, the laws of thermodynamics and how energy is exchanged between systems; can work effectively in a group to accomplish an objective, and make a significant contribution to its outcome; can combine the knowledge of physics and chemistry, together with the analytical skills of mathematics to find solutions to technical problems that benefit society; can use the computer to store and...

The program explores accounting theory and practice, and how accounting interrelates with other important business operations such as payroll, budget, and finance. ... [+]

You have probably heard that accountants use a lot of math and have to like numbers. That is true, but accountants need to like working with people just as much as working with numbers. Accounting is like solving puzzles but you need to ask a lot of questions and do a lot of investigative work to find all of the missing pieces.

Accounting opens doors in every kind of business coast to coast. The reason accounting may be the best route to a successful business career is because accounting has always been considered as the language and basic tool of business. It has always concerned itself with determining how a business is doing and what is the bottom line. But over the last two decades, the field of accounting has been changing dramatically in response to such explosive trends as the computer revolution, increased government regulations, frequent tax law changes, the globalization of business, and the on-going downsizing and restructuring of corporations....
