Engineering and Technical Science
Alpha Omega Epsilon and A.O.E. Foundation consider a technical science to be a discipline that is similar to an engineering discipline. The curriculum for a technical science degree would have an overlap with an engineering degree. A technical science degree must be a bachelor's of science and must be received at a college or university with an accredited program.

Degrees that qualify as technical science:
  • Any college or university degree that is accredited by ABET, such as Computer Science or Math. Refer to their website at for further information.
Degrees that are excluded from applying:
  • Life Sciences
  • Medical sciences (i.e. nursing, medicine, physical therapy, sports management)
  • Social Sciences (i.e. psychology)
  • Veterinary or animal sciences
List of degrees that MAY or MAY NOT be eligible, based on curriculum and college/university:
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Architecture
  • Bio-chemistry
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
