The Engineering Science program at GBCC is intended for those who have a strong passion for problem-solving, creativity, and the betterment of society. Our department focuses on the mathematical and physical sciences that our world depends on daily. Students who enroll in the program will have the opportunity to build their engineering background to further pursue a bachelor degree in a specialized field.
Why Great Bay?
We have an 11 to 1 student to faculty ratio which provides students a robust opportunity for greater campus involvement and success. With an excellent proximity to neighboring industries at the Pease Tradeport, the University of New Hampshire, and the Naval Shipyard, Great Bay Community College’s students have the flexibility to enhance their education to suit their professional goals.
Engineering graduates have the option to work in industry, the government, and academia.
• 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.
