Associate in Science Degree

The Engineering Science associate degree program, through the Connecticut College of Technology Pathways program, prepares students for entry into the University of Connecticut’s School of Engineering, Central Connecticut State University’s School of Engineering & Technology, Fairfield University’s School of Engineering, University of Hartford College of Engineering, University of New Haven School of Engineering, and Charter Oak State College. Upon successful completion of the program with a GPA of 3.0, students may continue on to these institutions with two years of credit towards a bachelor’s degree in engineering. Students may also use these courses to transfer to other institutions.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to:

  • be prepared to transfer to an engineering program in a 4-year institution
  • apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints
  • identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • communicate effectively
  • gain the ability to engage in life-long learning
