Engineering Science Transfer Program A.S.

Program Description

The Engineering Science curriculum offers the courses that are required in the first two years of study in many bachelor's degree programs in a variety of engineering disciplines such as Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, Electrical, and Biomedical Engineering. The Engineering Science degree is part of the statewide College of Technology (COT) initiative that is an umbrella for Connecticut's twelve community colleges and six public and private partner universities. Through COT's articulation agreement with partner universities, students who get an Associate degree in Engineering Science (with certain GPA's) can transfer seamlessly at junior level to the following institutions: University of Connecticut, Central Connecticut State University, Fairfield University, University of Hartford, University of New Haven, and Charter Oak State College.

Program Outcomes

Upon successful completion of all program requirements, graduates will be able to:

  1. Transfer seamlessly into a Bachelor of Science Degree Program in Engineering with junior level status
  2. Demonstrate the ability to assist in research, development, design, production, and testing associated with engineering
  3. Demonstrate a good understanding of engineering principles/concepts
  4. Demonstrate a good understanding of mathematical concepts
  5. Demonstrate good working knowledge of state-of-the-art hardware and software in related engineering fields
  6. Demonstrate the ability to think through a problem in a logical manner
  7. Organize and carry through to conclusion and solution to a problem
  8. Demonstrate good communication skills, and
  9. Demonstrate teamwork skills.
