PROGRAM DIRECTOR: Dr. John Mikalopas


The Engineering Science AS is designed to provide students the foundation in engineering and related physical sciences and mathematics courses in preparation for transfer to baccalaureate programs. Courses focus on understanding the principles and methods of engineering, application of mathematics, science, and computing techniques to the study of and solution to engineering problems, the importance of professional and ethical responsibilities of engineers, and support quantitative reasoning, scientific writing, and research.

The curriculum presented here applies to students who started the major in Fall 2021 or Spring 2022. If you enrolled as a matriculant prior to that, please see the College Catalog for the year you started the major as a matriculant for the curriculum requirements that apply to you.

Consultation with the Program Advisor is required.
