Associate in Science Transfer Program
CIP CODE: 5609.00
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.
- Successfully transfer into a four year engineering program with full junior status.
- Design and construct experiments as well as analyze and interpret data.
- Demonstrate the ability to analyze the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
- Demonstrate the ability to apply the principles and computational tools of mathematics, science, and engineering to solve a wide variety of engineering problems.
- Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and function as members and leaders of multidisciplinary teams.
