Associate in Science Degree, Transfer Program

Engineering Science provides a foundation in engineering principles, physical sciences, mathematics, and social fields in preparation for making important contributions to engineering and society. The program provides university parallel coursework for the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in engineering. Graduates continue their education by transferring to a four-year institution where they specialize in traditional fields such as electrical, mechanical, chemical, civil, environmental, materials, aerospace, and biomedical engineering. Past graduates have successfully completed studies at Alfred University, Clarkson University, Cornell University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Rochester Institute of Technology, SUNY Buffalo, the Watson School of Engineering at SUNY Binghamton, and numerous others nationwide.

Corning Community College maintains membership in the State University of New York Two Year Engineering Science Association, a consortium of two-year and four-year ABET accredited institutions offering study in engineering.

Graduates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of engineering principles and concepts through graphic, oral, and written communication; apply engineering principles and concepts in solution of problems and experiments; perform selected tasks relative to laboratory experiments in the physical sciences; interpret data according to physical fundamentals; demonstrate computer literacy and programming proficiency; use information from appropriate literature sources in completing objectives; and apply teamwork concepts in the solution of problems, experiments, or projects.

The State University of New York (SUNY) requires students who intend to receive a bachelor’s degree from a SUNY college to complete at least 30 credit hours in specific general education areas. Students in this program who plan to transfer to a SUNY college can meet 15 credits of the general education requirement. For more specific information about this requirement, refer to the SUNY General Education Requirement and see an advisor for program assistance.

High school or equivalent preparation required: Four years of science including biology, chemistry and physics, and four years of mathematics, including algebra, geometry or intermediate algebra, trigonometry, and pre-calculus. Students who don’t have this preparation will be able to get it here, but it may take longer to complete the program.
