New Engineering Science Degree Offered This Fall

in Home Page, News

Sussex County Community College (SCCC) will introduce a new Engineering Science degree option this upcoming fall semester as part of an Associate of Science (A.S.) program in Science and Mathematics.

The new Engineering Science option is designed to be multi-departmental, drawing on the combined skills of professors from the science, mathematics and engineering areas at SCCC. According to Associate Professor of Physics and Computer Science, Peter Schoch, “This is a fantastic opportunity for students who attend SCCC. Our current students were well prepared, in a generic manner, as Mathematics majors. However, our Engineering Science degree will allow our students to begin at SCCC and form a solid foundation that should allow them to pursue degrees in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, or Computer Engineering. Given our students past successes at places like NJIT, I see this only enhancing their chances for success and internships at their transfer institutions.”

Courses in the program will include “Engineering Statics,” “Numerical Methods of Engineering” and “Engineering Dynamics.” These courses will prepare students for this “in-demand” field and ease the transfer opportunities into a Bachelor of Science program at a four-year college or university.

For students that choose a field of study in one of the following STEM occupations, which refers to an occupation in science, technology, engineering or math, The Bureau of Labor Statistics ( notes that “The domain with the highest wage ($83,750) is the life and physical science, engineering, mathematics, and information technology occupations.”

The fall semester begins September 2nd. For more information on this program or any of the other degree and certificate programs offered at SCCC, contact Admissions at 973-300-2223 or visit

SCCC Becomes Authorized Pearson Testing Center

in Home Page, News

Now Offering More Than 450 Academic, Medical, Government and Licensure Certification Tests

Sussex County Community College announced that it has become an authorized Pearson Vue Testing Center offering an extensive range of more than 450 academic, medical, government and licensure certification tests for residents in the northern New Jersey area. This expansive range of tests is in addition to those the testing center has been offering that include; ACCUPLACER® Placement Testing, Distance Learning and Make-up proctored testing, CLEP® (College Level Examination Program), HSE (High School Equivalency), DSST® (DANTES Subject Standardized Tests to earn college credit for knowledge gained outside the classroom through military or other experience), PRAXIS™ (tests for paraprofessionals) and ServSafe® (tests for food handlers).

The portfolio of Pearson Vue tests to be offered at SCCC include Board Certification tests for medical disciplines ranging from Anesthesiology to Vascular Medicine, financial and insurance certifications, construction certifications, Juniper Networks, New Jersey Appraisers, Asbestos and Lead Programs, Nokia Solutions, Symantec tests and many, many more.

SCCC Testing Coordinator, Kathleen Carr stated, “We are delighted to offer the residents of northern New Jersey a convenient location where they can take tests required for professional certification or by academic institutions. In the past it would have been necessary to travel to southern portions of the state in order to take many of these tests. Given the full range of more than 450 Pearson Vue tests available at our center, chances are if a resident needs a test we’ll offer it and that means even the Virgin Islands Nurse’s Aide or Wyoming Insurance tests.”

SCCC to Host Betty June Silconas Poetry Festival

in Home Page, News

Sussex County Community College will host the Betty June Silconas Poetry Festival on Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm with registration beginning at 9:30 am in the Art Gallery. Workshops will be conducted from 10:00 am until 12 pm and a book fair will be held throughout the day.

Workshops will include:

Out to Launch: Getting Started – Catherine “Cat” Doty, Workshop Leader
The writer’s connection (i.e. the butt and the chair) is step one, and there are countless ways to go from there. Using various ways to jump-start new work, participants will begin a dozen poems in the hopes that they develop into a dozen good poems. Attendees should come with a sense of humor and adventure; leave with a passel of potential poems.

OO EE OO AH AH: The Psychology of Sound in Poetry – Susanna Rich, Workshop Leader
In poetry, especially, sound not only imitates meaning, it creates it. In this workshop, participants will focus on how acoustics enliven the reading, writing, and performing of poetry. Following a series of sonic explorations, they will write poetry based on sound frequencies.

The Poetry of Place – Edwin Romond, Workshop Leader
Robert Frost writes of returning to a special place “in the grey disguise of years / seeking the ache of memory here.” William Wordsworth’s revisiting Tintern Abbey unleashed a flood of recollection that resulted in one of the great poems of British literature. For participants, too, going back to a certain physical location could be an emotional catalyst for some powerful poetry. In this workshop attendees will use a short fantasy journey with music to remember one certain place in their past, and all that it evokes, as the focus of their writing.

12:00 noon to 1:00 pm: Lunch, Book Signings and Open Mic
9:30 am to 4:00 pm: Book Fair
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm: Readings by Doty, Rich and Romond
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm: Launch of The Stillwater Review Vol.4 and Reading

Workshop Fee is $10. Advanced Registration recommended to reserve a spot. All readings are free as is the book fair. Local poets are welcome to bring their books to sell. For more information contact Send workshop fee to Priscilla Orr, Director, Betty June Silconas Poetry Center, Sussex County Community College, One College Hill Rd., Newton, NJ 07860. Make check out to SCCC Foundation and put poetry festival in the memo line, and indicate which workshop you want to attend. Send book fair information to
