This program's design is based on: Traditional MCC General Education

The purpose of the Engineering Science program is to prepare students for transfer to a four-year engineering school with junior status. Input from several four-year engineering schools in New York State and the Two Year Engineering Science Association of New York has been incorporated into the curriculum design to ensure transferability of the courses. The curriculum provides students with a broad based engineering education enabling them to explore a variety of engineering disciplines before declaring the field they will pursue. Several courses in the program include design and build experiences that allow students to apply what they learn to create working models.
NOTE: Credit earned or transfer credit received (e.g., dual credit courses) for engineering technology courses (e.g., CIT, CPT, ELT, MET, MFG, OPT) are
applicable to the Engineering Science degree.
