Engineering Science A.S.
The Program (HEGIS Code 5609)
Engineering is the integration of physical principles, mathematics, modeling and common sense to create solutions or develop enhancements. Engineers are trained problem solvers. Engineers develop new technology and innovative materials to benefit the population of tomorrow.
This Associate in Science degree is designed to provide students with the first two years of a general baccalaureate engineering degree. The degree program focuses on conceptual and theoretical understanding of physical principles integrated with laboratory exercises. Students possessing this engineering A.S. degree typically transfer to a four-year institution and major in their desired field of specialization.
Applicants for this program should follow a college preparatory program in high school including a minimum of 4 years of high school mathematics, including precalculus, as well as physics, chemistry, and 4 years of English. Where possible, courses in computer problem solving and mechanical drawing are recommended.
Students graduating from the Engineering Science program with an A.S. degree will meet the following learning outcomes:
- A student will be able to design and conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data.
- A student will be able to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs.
- A student will be able to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems.
- Successfully meet 6 of the 10 SUNY General Education Categories.
Students entering this program are required to purchase or lease a professional microcomputer system for home use that meets department defined minimum specifications. Computers are an integral part of all course instruction within the Computer Science program.
Career opportunities available to students graduating with a baccalaureate engineering degree from an accredited institution abound. Career opportunities can vary from research intensive product development to private consulting, and from international corporate settings to opportunities with public agencies. In 2010, salaries ranged from $66,000 to $130,000, depending on the field of engineering specialization and geographic location according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Some career options are as follows:
- Engineering Management
- Engineering Sales
- New Product Research and Development
- Engineering Disciplines:
- Aeronautical / Aerospace
- Computer Hardware
- Fire Science
Graduates of this program typically transfer to various four-year colleges and universities with full-junior status. Our graduates have transferred to Rochester Institute of Technology, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Clarkson, Syracuse, Cornell, SUNY Buffalo, Clemson, SUNY Binghamton, University of Buffalo, SUNY ESF at Syracuse, and many more. Jefferson has partnered with some selected academic institutions to develop agreements that help students transfer smoothly. These agreements assist students with selecting courses in their academic program that will transfer effectively and allow students to complete specific baccalaureate programs with two additional years of study. Currently, Jefferson has formal transfer agreements with the following institutions:
Rochester Institute of Technology
*Restricted Electives: To be chosen from BIO 202, CHE 211, CHE 212, CHE 215, CIS 216, CIS 250, ENS 204, ENS 206, ENS 207.
** Students who have not completed the minimum 3 ½ units of high school Mathematics are required to take additional Mathematics before entering the Calculus sequence. Also, calculus is a prerequisite for Engineering Physics. Therefore, students entering with a deficiency in Mathematics will normally not be able to complete the Engineering Science Program in two years.
*** Students intending to transfer to a SUNY Baccalaureate program should use Social Science electives to meet SUNY General Education Requirements.
