The Engineering Science associate degree (A.S.) program at SUNY Niagara will prepare students to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree in engineering. This program includes those courses required in the first two years of a typical baccalaureate degree program in engineering. These courses are of an applied physics nature and include coursework in 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 coursework, thus enabling students to transfer seamlessly.

As currently structured, this program will meet all requirements for seamless transfer into SUNY and other 4-year engineering programs. This includes SUNY at Buffalo Aerospace, Mechanical, Civil & Environmental engineering. With some course substitutions, it will also meet requirements for seamless transfer into Chemical, Biomedical, Computer, or Industrial Engineering. Chemical and Biomedical engineering students should enroll in the Environmental track.

Students interested in 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 SUNY Niagara and cross-registration at a four-year campus.

Program Goals and Objectives
  • 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.
  • To provide a course of study which enables graduates to transfer seamlessly into four-year baccalaureate programs in aerospace, mechanical, civil, or environmental engineering.

Alumni Spotlight

Ashley Sciandra ’14

“I really like the community and atmosphere of the Engineering Science program at SUNY Niagara. Having smaller classes, you really have the chance to get to know the professors and other engineering students. The dual admissions program at SUNY Niagara helped for a seamless transfer to the University at Buffalo (UB) where I was able to enter as a junior. After completing my degree at SUNY Niagara, I graduated from UB in 2016 with a Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering. I now work for General Dynamics Electric Boat (EB) as a structural engineer, analyzing various structures and foundations for different load cases.”
