Associates in Science Degree - Engineering Science (HEGIS: 5609)

Program Description

     The Associate in Science degree program in Engineering Science is designed specifically to enable students to transfer, with junior status, to the upper-level engineering college or university of their choice, where they can complete the B.S. Degree in Engineering. As such, the program provides the same core courses that would be encountered in the first two years of study at most four year institutions offering degrees in the  following disciplines:

  • Aeronautical Engineering
  • Architectural Engineering
  • Biological Engineering    
  • Chemical Engineering, ChE
  • Civil Engineering, CE      
  • Computer Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering, EE
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Geological Engineering    
  • Materials Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering     
  • ME Nuclear Engineering

Core courses in calculus, chemistry, engineering physics

and engineering science constitute the nucleus of this

program. Selected courses in the liberal arts support

and enhance this central core.

The Engineering Science Program at SUNY Orange strives to form a student's ability to think critically in real time, to develop a professional work ethic built on cooperation and group problem solving and to provide the rigorous conceptual and ethical framework required in a field where professional competence is expected.

Note:

This information is provided for your convenience only; for definitive course sequence information students should refer to the printed catalog and to their academic advisor.

The basic course in calculus and engineering physics constitute the nucleus of this program for students who plan to specialize in mechanical, electrical, civil, chemical, biological, environmental or aeronautical engineering at a four-year college. Selected courses in liberal arts support and enhance the core study.

To initiate this program students must have tested into Calculus l (MAT 205) or must have completed either College Trigonometry (MAT 122) or Pre-Calculus Mathematics (MAT 131). It is possible to take the prerequisite math courses during the Summer sessions to prepare for Calculus I in the Fall. A student who does not meet this requirement should not be discouraged but should meet with an advisor regarding a planned course of study. See note below and consult suggested three-year program on following page.

Engineering Elective Options:

Students must take a minimum of three courses (eight credits) from the following depending upon their area of specialization:

Thermodynamics (ENG 214)

Solid Mechanics (ENG 220)

Circuit Theory (ENG 212)

Modern Physics (PHY 204)

Material Science (EGR 218)

Linear Algebra (MAT 209)

Engineering Computations (EGR 216)

Students majoring in chemical, biological or environmental engineering should plan on to take:

Organic Chemistry I (CHM 201)

Organic Chemistry II (CHM 202)

Computer Engineering majors should take:

Computer Science II (CSC 210)

Data Structures (CSC 201)

(Organic Chemistry II or Data Structures may be substituted for Mechanics II with the permission of the Department Chair.) Proper advising is crucial for proper course selection.

Optional Extended Program

The Engineering program can be completed on a part-time basis over a longer period than four semesters. Often students who have missed foundation courses in high school, or who have job or family commitments, have enrolled in a reduced number of courses each semester and have completed them with great success. If this approach is desirable, speak with a member of the Engineering faculty who will assist you in arranging a reduced load program to meet individual needs. We include a sample block of how such a program might appear.

First Semester Credits
ENG 101 Freshman English l 3
MAT 121 College Algebra 3
EGR 101 Engineering l 3
Second Semester Credits
ENG 102 Freshman English ll 3
MAT 103 College Trigonometry 3
EGR 102 Engineering ll 3

Students should meet with their advisor in order to choose one or more additional courses (3 to 7 credits) for these first two semesters. The recommendation is that these courses be in basic science or taken from the SUNY General Education Requirements list, such as:

SUNY Social Science List (PDF) credits: 3 OR PHY 101 General Physics 1 credits 4

SUNY American History List (PDF) credits: 3 OR PHY 102 General Physics 2 credits 4

Total 12 - 16 credits.
