Math/Engineering/Physical Sciences

Mission Statement

The Department of Mathematics/Engineering/Physical Sciences offers a broad range of courses that service the career programs of the college and that will transfer to baccalaureate degree-granting institutions. The department also offers developmental mathematics courses to prepare students for college-level mathematics.

The department will:

  • Provide freshman and sophomore-level coursework which meets or exceeds the standards of public institutions of higher learning.
  • Offer an innovative remedial mathematics program accommodating various skill levels.
  • Develop and provide courses relevant to the career and professional degree programs of the college.
  • Prepare students with strong content knowledge in chemistry and physics with an emphasis on critical thinking and problem-solving skills, which will allow them to meet career goals.
  • Offer transferable courses in astronomy and physical science that will meet general education requirements in science.
  • Ensure supplementary student support through audiovisual materials and tutorial services.
  • Provide academic advising to students with engineering majors and general studies.
