Associate in Science degree (AS)

Graduates of the Associate in Science degree program in Engineering Science are prepared for admission with advanced standing to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) engineering program. To facilitate placement in the majority of baccalaureate engineering degree programs, it is strongly advised that students complete the following course of study leading to the Associate in Science degree. The Engineering Science curriculum is a cooperative offering of the engineering technology, science, and mathematics programs, and is coordinated by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) Department. Academic advisement is provided by the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (Technology Building, Room 20, telephone 718-631-6207), the Department of Mechanical Engineering Technology and Design Drafting (Science Building, Room 124, telephone 718-631-6294), and the Department of Physics (Science Building, Room 342, tele- phone 718-631-6366). Interested students should contact the ECET Department (T-20, 718-631-6207) as soon as possible following admission to the College.

Student Learning Outcomes for Academic Programs

A.S. in Engineering Science  

General Education Outcomes

A robust general education is founded on the knowledge, concepts, methods, and perspectives that students gain through the study of many academic disciplines. These disciplinary studies stimulate intellectual inquiry, global awareness, and cultural and artistic appreciation: they equip students to make informed judgments and remain engaged beyond the classroom. To that end, QCC promotes educational activities that allow students to demonstrate that they can:

  1. Communicate effectively in various forms
  2. Use analytical reasoning to identify issues or problems and evaluate evidence in order to make informed decisions
  3. Reason quantitatively as required in various fields of interest and in everyday life
  4. Apply information management and digital technology skills useful for academic research and lifelong learning

To support these institutional general education outcomes, the academic departments—through their programs—may also assess the ability of students to:

  • Integrate knowledge and skills in the program of study
  • Make ethical judgments while recognizing multiple perspectives, as appropriate in the program of study
  • Work collaboratively to accomplish learning objectives

Approved by the Academic Senate on February 13, 2018.

Program Outcomes

Students will demonstrate…

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. An ability to design a system, component, or a process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. An ability to communicate effectively
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal contest
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
