Engineering Science Degree

Associate in Science Degree

The MxCC Engineering Science associate degree program is part of the Connecticut College of Technology (COT) pathway programs. The Program prepares students to complete an Associate of Science degree in Engineering Science and make seamless transition into a Bachelor of Science Degree Program in Engineering (or Engineering Concentration) with junior level status in a COT affiliated institution. The affiliated institutions include University of Connecticut, Central Connecticut State University, University of Hartford, Fairfield University, University of Bridgeport, Eastern Connecticut State University, and Southern Connecticut State University.

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.

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

  1. Identify and formulate engineering problems by applying engineering, mathematical, scientific and technological principles and concepts.
  2. Solve engineering problems using critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
  3. Work as a member of a team.
  4. Recognize the need for (or Engage in) life-long learning and remain current in one’s field.

The MxCC Robotics Club was established in 2014 to provide students with hands-on, multidisciplinary, and collaborative experience in the rapidly expanding fields of robotics, robotics programming, and 3D printing. The Club creates a community for the students and helps them to forge new relationships around their common interest, thus enhancing retention.

Start today toward your engineering career pathway – or to qualify for that advanced job title – with MxCC’s two-year degree.

Note About Financial Aid 
Federal regulations stipulate that a student may only receive financial aid for courses that count towards their degree/certificate. To comply with this regulation, MxCC must track the courses that a student is registered for that count towards their degree/certificate program.  Courses identified as not meeting program requirements will not be included in the calculation of financial aid eligibility. Pre requisites will be covered. This procedure is now in effect. Eligibility ceases once a student attempts 90 credits for a typical 60 credit program.
