Engineering Science A.S.
Engineering Science is a ThinkPad University curriculum in which the use of laptop computers is integrated into courses.
Engineering Science is a transfer program designed for students with high school preparation in mathematics and science who plan to continue their education at colleges of engineering. This program provides the core of knowledge common to all engineering disciplines such as chemical, civil, electrical/computer, and mechanical engineering. Students wishing to specialize in a pure science are also provided with a strong background to enable them to continue in their chosen field. Students benefit from relatively low costs, small classes and individual faculty attention.
This rigorous program has resulted in successful transfer opportunities for graduates with two additional years typically required for completion of the B.S. degree in all engineering fields. Graduates receive high priority when transferring to New York state engineering schools. Many four-year colleges and universities offer scholarships and other incentives to graduates of the Engineering Science program.
Should a student decide to terminate his/her education with the associate in science degree, there are employment opportunities in such positions as engineering assistant and laboratory technician.
Conditional acceptance may be given to students who are interested in engineering science, but whose high school preparation does not meet the usual requirements for admission to the program.
Candidates for the A.S. in Engineering Science must be full time, in residence and matriculated in Engineering Science for the entire second year.
Transfer to aero-, bio-, chemical, civil, electrical/computer, forest, mechanical, and allied engineering programs.
