Associate in Science Transfer Program

CIP Code: 14.0101


The Engineering Science program prepares students to transfer to engineering colleges and universities to complete a BS degree in the engineering discipline in two additional years. The program delivers a high-quality curriculum in applied physics and the engineering sciences.  By making student learning its central focus the department creates an environment that promotes critical thinking, innovation and engages students in the classroom and the community. Our faculty encourage and create a respectful, equitable, and inclusive learning environment.

Program Learning Outcomes

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of engineering careers and engineering program transfer opportunities.
  2. Complete experiments, interpret data, and analyze results.
  3. Analyze the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  4. Apply the principles and computational tools of mathematics, science, and engineering to solve a wide variety of engineering problems.
  5. Communicate effectively and function as members and leaders of multidisciplinary teams.

The Engineering Science Program is designed to prepare the student to transfer to any of the major universities as a full junior in the engineering major of his/her choice. The program is calculus based and is modeled on the first two years of engineering majors in schools such as Binghamton University, SUNY at Buffalo, Clarkson University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Rochester Institute of Technology, Syracuse University, Wilkes University, and Cornell University. Students who successfully complete the program can usually transfer to the listed schools as well as most unlisted universities. Students can take electives needed to transfer as Electrical, Mechanical, Computing, Civil, Industrial and Systems Engineering majors as well as Engineering Management and a number of others.

To be admitted to this, or any other engineering program, the student needs to be properly prepared by taking courses in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, as listed under "Academic Preparation for Admissions."

Sequence of Courses

The following model meets all program requirements for students who are pursuing full-time study and wish to complete the course work in four semesters. Those who desire a slower pace or need preparatory courses will require more than four semesters.

First Year

Second Year

Total Credits Required to Graduate: 68


Computer and Calculator Recommendations

Students will have to use a computer to analyze problems, make presentations, and write reports.  While the College provides access to computers, most students need to have their own computer since they are so often used.  Students will also need a computer and a high level graphing calculator.  The T-89 is recommended.

Engineering Majors

Students choose technical electives appropriate to their individual career path.  Chemical Engineering majors take two semesters of Organic Chemistry.  Biological or Environmental engineers usually take two semesters of Biology.  Computer Engineers usually need three semesters of programming classes.  Civil and Mechanical engineering fields usually require Statics, Dynamics and Strength of Materials.  Circuits are taken by most students. Engineering Management and Systems Engineering options will require other substitutions. Students are urged to review requirements of their desired university transfer program.
