Engineering Science (A.S.)

This Engineering Pathway degree is offered system-wide. It consists of course work in engineering, mathematics, sciences, and GENERAL EDUCATION requirements that provide a solid comprehensive background for continuation in a four-year engineering degree program. A grade average of “B” with no grade less than “C” is required for automatic continuation at the University of Connecticut’s School of Engineering, University of Hartford’s College of Engineering, or the University of New Haven. The curriculum is designed to serve as the first two years of the Bachelor of Science degree. Some courses in this program are not offered at Asnuntuck Community College but can be taken at other Connecticut Community Colleges.

Program Outcomes:
The Engineering Pathway program is offered systemwide. It consists of coursework in engineering, mathematics, and the sciences, and GENERAL EDUCATION requirements that provide a solid comprehensive background for continuation in a four-year engineering degree program. Upon completion of the program, graduates are able to: transition seamlessly with junior-level status into a Bachelor of Science Engineering program offered by the University of Connecticut, the University of Hartford, or the University of New Haven; demonstrate the ability to assist in research, development, design, production, testing, and other functions associated with engineering; demonstrate competence in applying engineering principles and concepts within an applied context; demonstrate scientific and quantitative reasoning skills; demonstrate the ability to employ information technology skills as appropriate in engineering design and development; and demonstrate effective soft skills in communication, teamwork, work ethic, and professional demeanor.

Transfer Opportunities:
The Engineering Science associate degree program is one of two pathways sponsored by Connecticut’s College of Technology. The engineering pathway leads to transfer with junior level status to the Engineering Schools at the University of Connecticut, the University of Hartford, and the University of New Haven. A grade average of “B” with no grade less than “C” is required for automatic continuation at the University of Connecticut’s School of Engineering, University of Hartford’s College of Engineering, or the University of New Haven. The curriculum is designed to serve as the first two years of the Bachelor of Science degree.

Employment Information:
Students graduating with a degree in Engineering Science can gain employment in engineering or emerging technology fields, including retraining and upgrading opportunities.
