This curriculum is designed to meet the needs of
students who plan to transfer to a college or university
that grants a baccalaureate degree in engineering.
Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics
to develop economical solutions to technical problems.
Their work is the link between social needs and commercial
applications. In addition to design and development, many
engineers work in testing, production, or maintenance.
Upon successful completion of the Associate of Sciences, Engineering, degree, the student will be able to:
- Explain and apply the foundational engineering concepts.
- Perform laboratory experiments and projects (collect, report and analyze data) by applying theoretical concepts and the scientific method.
- Demonstrate safe laboratory skills.
- Recognize and discuss the ethical issues in the discipline.
- Locate, identify, evaluate and use scientific information effectively.
- Apply computational skills in reasoning, estimation, problem-solving, and analysis.
- Use appropriate grammatical forms in both oral and written formats to effectively communicate ideas and concepts.
- Master the engineering design process by completing a design project and report through teamwork.
Graduates of this program have transferred to such schools
as the University of Maryland, the University of Delaware
and The Johns Hopkins University.
This program provides the first two years of a bachelorís
degree in engineering. Students should determine, as
early as possible, the institution and area of engineering in
which they expect to complete the remainder of their work,
in order to help meet the specific requirements of that
institution for their engineering field. Overall job
opportunities in engineering are expected to be favorable
over the next decade. Starting salaries are significantly
higher than those of college graduates in other fields.
Engineers are usually specialized and engage in a variety
of activities. Engineering specialties include aeronautical,
chemical, civil, mechanical, electrical, biomedical,
computer hardware, environmental, industrial and more.
