Associate in Science

Engineering Science

The Engineering Science program is designed to provide a foundation for further studies towards the bachelor’s degree in variety of Engineering disciplines. The curriculum provides a base of mathematics, science, and engineering fundamentals common to the first two years of a Baccalaureate engineering program. Engineering electives provide special courses to suit particular interest in any sub-discipline of engineering including Electrical/Computer Engineering, Civil/Mechanical/Industrial Engineering, and Chemical/Biomedical Engineering.

Graduates will be able to:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics and principles of sciences-including chemistry and physics to solve engineering problems.
  • Use techniques, skills and modern engineering tools to construct and simulate science and engineering experiments.
  • Communicate technical information using written, verbal and graphical presentations.
  • Demonstrate the professional and ethical responsibility of the engineering fields.

Note:

MA 109 is the prerequisite for MA 120 or test placement or permission from the Department chairperson.

ET 111 is the prerequisite for ET 121.

CIS 108 is the prerequisite for CIS 165.
