Engineering Option - N079



  • Engineering Option

    Provides the first two years of a traditional engineering program, in which the student chooses a particular engineering field: Mechanical/Civil/Industrial, Electrical, or Computer Systems.

    Upon graduating from this program, students will demonstrate:

    • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
    • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
    • An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
    • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve problems
    • An ability to communicate effectively
    • The education necessary to understand the impact of engineering in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
    • An ability to engage in life-long learning
    • A knowledge of contemporary issues.

    All students are encouraged to check with their transfer institution as to what their requirements are for their particular area of interest so they do not have to take more courses than are needed.

    We advise that students start their mathematics courses as soon as they enter the program.

    The majority of our students transfer to UMass or WNEU.  For students transferring to UMass Amherst the minimum GPA is 2.7.
