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
Robots, 3D printers, experimental labs, cutting-edge computer software and online resources, engaging labs and classrooms, highly qualified instructors … these are the ingredients that make up the newly revised Engineering Science degree program at Middlesex Community College.
For students who have always been good at science and math, and have a strong interest in technology – this engaging and challenging program puts you on the pathway to an in-demand career.
Students can select their major in Engineering Science and at the same time be enrolled in MxCC’s Honors Program.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Life Support and Sustainable Living (LSSL) program – a hands-on engineering and technology program that allows students enrolled at Connecticut College of Technology institutions to work together on real world projects.
As part of the Connecticut Community College System’s College of Technology, MxCC’s Engineering Science degree prepares you for transfer into schools of engineering at many 4-year colleges including:
- The University of Connecticut
- Central Connecticut State University
- Fairfield University
- University of Hartford
- University of New Haven
- Charter Oak State College
This program also prepares students for entry into engineering-based industry positions, as well as for advancement (through retraining and upgrading skills) for those already employed in engineering technology fields.
Start today toward your engineering career pathway – or to qualify for that advanced job title – with MxCC’s two-year degree.
