About this course
Engineering Science provides a foundation in engineering principles, physical sciences, mathematics, and social fields in preparation for making important contributions to engineering and society. The program provides university parallel coursework for the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in engineering. Graduates continue their education by transferring to a four-year institution where they specialize in traditional fields such as electrical, mechanical, chemical, civil, environmental, materials, aerospace, and biomedical engineering. Past graduates have successfully completed studies at Alfred University, Clarkson University, Cornell University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Rochester Institute of Technology, SUNY Buffalo, the Watson School of Engineering at SUNY Binghamton, and numerous others nationwide.
Graduates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of engineering principles and concepts through graphic, oral, and written communication; apply engineering principles and concepts in solution of problems and experiments; perform selected tasks relative to laboratory experiments in the physical sciences; interpret data according to physical fundamentals; demonstrate computer literacy and programming proficiency; use information from appropriate literature sources in completing objectives; and apply teamwork concepts in the solution of problems, experiments, or projects.
