Total Number of Credits Required for Certificate: 34*
*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 35 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:
gain admission to a four-year engineering program;
participate as an active member of an engineering design team;
solve problems such as determining forces acting on a body using fundamental engineering design calculations;
conduct tests for chemical components or strength of materials; and
write and present reports on results of tests and/or mathematical analyses.
The Engineering Certificate is designed for students to complete the majority of the common core mathematics and science courses that are required by four-year institutions for a baccalaureate degree in engineering. Students preparing to transfer to a particular institution should adjust their program to meet the specific requirements of that institution. Courses may be taken in any sequence if prerequisites are met. All courses required for the Engineering Certificate are included in the Engineering Associate of Science degree.
