Engineering A.S. Degree

Program Advisor: Gary Bradway .... read more about Gary

Engineers are typically thought of as problem-solving, technically skilled people. However, they also need to be creative, imaginative, and aware of social needs and problems. The well-rounded education provided by this program cultivates self-knowledge and leads to the specialized fields of professional engineering.

This Engineering degree program follows the first two years at most institutions offering a baccalaureate degree in engineering, so that students who complete the program can successfully transfer to colleges like R.P.I., UMass., Clarkson, and Worcester Polytech.
