How many years for mechanical engineering after associate's degree?

An associate degree usually takes two years to complete. After earning an associate degree, students can transfer to a college or university for further study. Many colleges and universities offer a bachelor's degrees in mechanical engineering which normally requires completing around 130 college credits.
