The Engineering Science Program is multi-departmental. This program encompasses a variety of closely related areas of the sciences, mathematics, and engineering. It is intended to provide a means whereby students, while acquiring knowledge of engineering methods, can pursue their interests in areas of natural science. The options offered within the curriculum prepare students for advanced study in engineering.
Upon completion of this program, graduates will be able to:
Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
Demonstrate an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
The Engineering Science AS at SCCC is designed for students who wish to transfer into 4-year Bachelor of Science programs. In September 2008, the governor and state legislature created a law that established a statewide transfer agreement for students transferring with a degree from a New Jersey community college to a New Jersey public four-year college or university. Students can now seamlessly transfer their academic credits from a completed community college Associate of Arts (A.A.) to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or from a completed Associate of Science (A.S.) to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree program at New Jersey’s public four-year colleges and universities. Our Counseling & Advising Center can help you with transfer questions. More information on this opportunity is available at njtransfer.org.
