Degree offered

Associate in Science in Engineering Transfer (Engineering Science Transfer Concentration)

Credits required 65/71

Acting Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs Anthony Ucci

Program contact Eileen Young, Department Chair and Professor of Engineering and Technology, ext. 2746

Program Goals Statement

This option prepares students to transfer to engineering programs at four-year colleges and universities. Students choose core electives from an approved list based on an engineering discipline of their choice. Students who are not prepared for calculus can take the prerequisite math courses at BCC.

Student Learning Outcomes

Program Information

Students may also elect to be in the UMass Dartmouth/BCC Cooperative Education program.

After BCC

Graduates of this program have successfully transferred to many four-year institutions, including Brown University, Northeastern University, University of Massachusetts, University of Rhode Island, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

BCC participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer. For a complete listing of eligible MassTransfer programs and current BCC articulation agreements, visit the Transfer Affairs website at BristolCC.edu/transfer
