Guide to Major Elective Sequences:

Sequence A – Advanced Composites Option: ACM120G, ACM215G, ACM253G, and ACM257G.

Sequence B – Applied Math/Programming Option: MATH170G or MATH215G, CIS177G, and CIS112G or CIS148G.

Sequence C – Practical Data Science Certificate Option: DATA215G, CIS177G, DATA220G, and DATA225G (along with MATH235 and ARTS125 electives).

Sequence D – Students may transfer the following from other CCSNH colleges: Computer Aided Design (CAD), Engineering Statistics, and Engineering Dynamics or Strength of Materials.

*If MATH150G/MATH152G is needed, it is strongly recommended that students complete this course prior to beginning the Engineering Science program in order to stay on track.

Please Note: The Engineering Science degree is a rigorous program. Students are expected to spend additional time beyond the minimum to complete the requirements and achieve success. Students are also expected to have college-level reading, writing, and math skills as soon as possible after declaring this major.

Program Outcomes

  • Students will access, generate, process, and transfer information using appropriate technologies.
  • Students will understand mathematics and become mathematically confident by communicating and reasoning mathematically, by applying mathematics in real-world settings, and by solving problems through the integrated study of number systems, geometry, algebra, and trigonometry.
  • Students will understand and apply scientific concepts, principles, and theories pertaining to the physical world and recognize the historical development of ideas in science.
  • Students will apply technological knowledge and skills to design, construct, use, and evaluate products and systems.
  • Students will understand the relationships and common themes that connect mathematics, science, and technology and apply the themes to other areas.
  • Students will apply the knowledge and skills of mathematics, science, and technology to real-life problems and make informed decisions.
  • After completing the program, students will be prepared to begin using mathematical analysis and scientific inquiry, as appropriate, to pose questions, seek answers, and develop solutions. Students generally move onto 4-year institutions to complete their Baccalaureate in a specified engineering field.
