Engineering Science - 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.
