Program Goals

  • To prepare students to use a multi-disciplinary set of core theories from mathematics and physical sciences and apply them to solve problems in higher-level courses in a college of engineering.
  • To instill in the students a commitment to lifelong learning in
    preparation to transfer credits to a baccalaureate engineering
    science program and obtain professional licensure.
  • To provide students with a General Education foundation.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of the program, the graduate will be able to:

  1. Utilize advanced mathematics, including Calculus, to solve problems in physical and applied sciences related to engineering.
  2. Work in teams to successfully analyze and propose alternate strategies to solve problems in systems, processes or products.
  3. Utilize specialized computer programs to improve productivity in different engineering disciplines.
  4. Compare and contrast different engineering disciplines.
  5. Apply the scientific method of inquiry to analyze problems and draw conclusions from data.
