A Note about Program Requirements

The requirements listed below are for students entering into this program in Spring 2016. Students who entered the program during a prior semester will find their specific requirements listed in the Catalog under which they entered. Archived Catalogs are accessible through the dropdown menu above.

Program Description

Engineering is a growing profession integrating science and mathematics with design and laboratory study. It is and will be the profession upon which the United States depends for its growth and ability to compete in world markets. Our Engineering Science program parallels the first two years of the four-year engineering curriculum of most engineering schools throughout the country. The program not only leads to an Associate in Science degree but also to transfer to a host of engineering schools.

To prepare to become accomplished engineers, students combine studies of the fundamental concepts of calculus, chemistry, physics, electricity, energy, engineering mechanics, and computer science with the development of writing and reading skills and studies in the social sciences and the humanities. Upon transfer as juniors to four-year engineering institutions, our engineering graduates are not only well versed in math and the sciences, but also can read and write well and are sensitive to the needs of the world in which they live.

For those who work while attending Westchester Community College, the Engineering Science program is offered both day and evening.

Program Learning Outcomes

  1. Students can transfer as a junior to a 4 year engineering school with the required skills.
  2. Students will have a thorough understanding of mathematics through Differential Equations.
  3. Students will have a thorough understanding of the basic laws of calculus based physics.
  4. Student will have an understanding of the engineering methodology used in solving problems.
