Engineering Science (A.S.)

Engineers are problem solvers. A high-rise developer needs beams with higher tensile strength, to improve earthquake safety. A heart surgeon calls for more efficient transplant valves and consumers demand better mileage —lighter cars — but won’t compromise crash safety.To resolve the problem at the heart of these scenarios, engineers become innovators, communicators — in graphic and other media — and listeners.

The Department of Science offers an A.S. degree program in Engineering Science. The program provides you with the basic education necessary to enter the third year of an engineering major. Its objectives are to offer a curriculum that meets the needs and interests of engineering oriented students enrolled at the College; to include in this curriculum the basic science and mathematics of the first years of an engineering education; and to prepare students to successfully pursue their education in the upper division of engineering programs which lead to careers for chemical, mechanical, civil, electrical, computer and other engineering specializations. The curriculum includes courses in the physical sciences, computer methods and mathematics, as well as the liberal arts courses required in engineering programs.


Engineers are team players. Whether you’re an electrical, mechanical or civil engineer; an environmental, chemical, or computer engineer, you’ll work with a team which could include designers, government representatives, biologists, urban planners, and other professionals.

Whatever type engineer you become, the problems you help solve will improve products, protect the environment, impact our ability to collect information, travel comfortably, stay healthy— and more.
