Total Number of Credits Required for Degree: 66-68*
*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 degree to 67-69 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 degree, 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 degree program is designed for students to complete the majority of courses required by four-year institutions during the first two years of a baccalaureate engineering program. Early and direct contact with the university to which students are planning to transfer to complete their engineering degree is recommended since there are wide variations between engineering programs in required and accepted courses. Courses may be taken in any sequence if prerequisites are met.
