The STEM Academy provides the highest quality of science education, scholarly research, and technical expertise to the people and industries of the United States.
This program will equip students with the knowledge and skills required to succeed as technicians in the modern biotechnology environment and provide QCC graduates with seamless transfer to the BS program at York College. Course study is complemented by hands-on internships and field experiences with local partners such as the FDA, Stony Brook University, and Albert Einstein Medical College.
Everywhere you look, you see engineering at work – bridges, buildings, space ships, cell phones, and more. This math and science-based program gives you the foundation you need for transfer with advanced standing to a bachelor’s degree program in Engineering.
Recent advances in chemistry, biology and computer science have created new opportunities in fields such as forensic science and criminalistics. This program provides a science-based foundation for students to transfer to John Jay College of Criminal Justice (minimum GPA of 2.5 required) and receive their Bachelor of Science degree.
Do you have strong analytical, practical and visual skills? Prepare for drafting and design careers, -- engineering drafters, associate designers, detailers, technical illustrators, architectural drafters and CAD operators.
Fascinated by computers and their critical role in our lives? Become a computer programmer or technician, a technical sales representative, or a LAN technician. Gain the education, the technical skills, and the “hands-on experience” through internships and cooperative education projects and be ready for the job market and/or move toward a Bachelor of Engineering Technology.
Graduates are competent technicians prepared with problem-solving skills, a strong technical foundation, and the mathematics and science education needed to enter the field of electrical technology. Graduates may also transfer into the junior year of a bachelor’s program in engineering technology.
Go where the future is with this program that combines learning of technology, art, music, and writing. Gain valuable skills in communications, programming, artistic layout and design, and animation. A cooperative education component puts you in the work place for college credit.
Do you see yourself at work in the space program, missile development, air and water pollution control, robotics or high speed railway equipment development? Learn in classrooms and labs that contain the same equipment as those found in industry. Graduates face strong employment opportunities as well as the possibility of transfer into a mechanical engineering degree program.
Find a career in communications through the study of electronics, computers, and networks. Gain the education so you are ready to solved problems involving complete voice, video and data networks. Some students go on to study for a Bachelor’s in Engineering Technology.
The above programs - Electrical Engineering Technology, Computer Engineering Technology, and Mechanical Engineering Technology — are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (ETAC of ABET):
