Engineering Science, A.S., Major #0530

Engineering Science is a ThinkPad University curriculum in which the use of laptop computers is integrated into courses.

Engineering Science is a transfer program designed for students with high school preparation in mathematics and science who plan to continue their education at colleges of engineering. This program provides the core of knowledge common to all engineering disciplines such as chemical, civil, electrical/computer, and mechanical engineering. Students wishing to specialize in a pure science are also provided with a strong background to enable them to continue in their chosen field. Students benefit from relatively low costs, small classes and individual faculty attention.  Conditional acceptance may be given to students who are interested in engineering science, but whose high school preparation does not meet the usual requirements for admission to the program. Candidates for the A.S. in Engineering Science must be full time, in residence and matriculated in Engineering Science for the entire second year.

 Student Learning Outcomes

Upon Successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Apply concepts form mathematics and the physical sciences to engineering problems.

  • Analyze and interpret experimental data as a means of finding solutions to engineering problems.

  • Communicate effectively, integrating text and graphical representation of engineering students.

  • Formulate engineering models of physical systems.

  • Utilize computational and numerical techniques in the solution of engineering problems.
