Engineering Studies, A.S.
The Engineering Studies associate degree (A.S.) program at Niagara County Community College will prepare students to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree in engineering. This program includes courses typically required in the first two years of a baccalaureate degree program in engineering. Coursework in the Engineering studies program is of an applied physics nature and includes Statics, Dynamics, Mechanical Properties of Materials, etc. This program fulfills the academic needs in such areas as mathematics, physics, and chemistry in support of engineering studies coursework thus enabling students to transfer seamlessly.
As currently structured, this program will meet all requirements for a seamless transfer into any SUNY program, including State University at Buffalo in Aerospace, Civil, Mechanical, Environmental, Industrial, or Biomedical Engineering.
Students interested in areas such as Chemical and Electrical engineering will have the option of completing the bulk of their required coursework within this program in conjunction with the selection of appropriate course electives at NCCC and cross registration at a four-year campus.
Program Goals and Objectives
- To provide a course of study which enables graduates to transfer seamlessly into four-year baccalaureate programs in Aerospace, Civil, Mechanical, Environmental, Industrial, and Biomedical Engineering.
- To provide a course of study which enables graduates to complete a large portion of requirements for transfer into four-year baccalaureate programs in Chemical and Electrical Engineering.
- To provide a core of mathematics and science courses in support of continued coursework at the four-year level and in support of professional endeavors upon attainment of the baccalaureate degree.
