BUILD TOWARD A FOUR-YEAR ENGINEERING DEGREE IN THIS CAREER-ORIENTED TRANSFER PROGRAM

Monroe Community College’s engineering science associate degree program has a national reputation for excellence. Our engineering students routinely transfer to top engineering schools.

In MCC’s engineering associate degree program, you will:

  • Take engineering classes from award-winning faculty
  • Get practical, hands-on experience in engineering science
  • Earn credits you can transfer directly into an engineering bachelor’s degree program
  • Develop practical skills and a personal portfolio of design/build projects
  • Get to compete in a variety of national intercollegiate design competitions — our engineering students have won the ASEE National Robotic Competition six times!
  • Be able to take classes at RIT and UR in our cross registration program

Earn a two-year degree that’s engineered for success — and get halfway toward a bachelor’s degree in engineering.

MAXIMIZE YOUR TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES WITH OUR TWO-YEAR ENGINEERING DEGREE

Monroe Community College’s two-year degree in engineering science satisfies the freshman and sophomore course requirements for an engineering bachelor’s degree. You’ll gain a broad-based engineering education that lets you explore a variety of engineering disciplines before declaring a specialty. You’ll also be able to demonstrate your skills via a series of design/build projects.

MCC has a reputation as one of the nation’s most trusted engineering transfer programs because our engineering science degree is built upon input from highly ranked four-year engineering schools, as well as the Two-Year Engineering Science Association of New York.

To learn more about why our engineering degree stands out among community college engineering programs, contact an admissions counselor at admissions@monroecc.edu or (585) 292-2200.
