This program prepares students for transfer, as juniors, into baccalaureate engineering programs, including civil, mechanical, chemical, electrical, aerospace, petroleum, industrial, and nuclear engineering. High School Mathematics Courses A and B or the equivalent, and one year of a laboratory science are required. Chemistry and Physics are recommended. All courses listed by course name and number plus the two restricted electives, two hours of Physical Education and College Seminar are required for graduation.

Goals & Outcomes

Goal 1. To prepare graduates to successfully transfer to a four-year institution in a related field of study.

  • Graduates of the program will transfer will full junior level status to a four-year institution in a related field of study.

Goal 2, To prepare graduates to effectively use technology to collect, analyze and display data as well as problem solve

  • Students will utilize computer hardware to collect/analyze data and problem solve.

Goal 3. To prepare students to develop scientific documentation skills necessary for engineering programs

  • Students will maintain lab records hand-written and/or electronically.
  • Students apply a qualitative and scientific approach to problem solving.
  • Students demonstrate techniques for the creation, retrieval and graphic analysis of scientific databases.

Goal 4. The student will work as part of a group to complete laboratory assignments and projects

  • Students will demonstrate their ability to function effectively within a group.
  • Students will demonstrate the ability to interact with the members of the group in a give and take manner.
  • Students will demonstrate an ability to respect diverse opinions within the group and effectively compromise to develop workable solutions.

Goal 5. Enable students to develop analytical problem solving skills

  • Students will develop theoretical hypotheses, collect experimental data and reach logical conclusions as to why some discrepancies exist for a variety of problems from the sciences.

Goal 6. To prepare students to communicate effectively in the field of Engineering Science.

  • In their lab based computing and science classes students will be part of a group and write laboratory reports.
  • In their programming course students will write appropriately documented programs.
  • Students will make oral presentations as required in Engineering Science courses.

Goal 7. To prepare students to demonstrate information literacy.

  • Students will use traditional and contemporary information technology.
  • Students will identify, access, and appropriately use authoritative sources of information.
