Total Number of Credits Required for Certificate: 34*
*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101 in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.
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.
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.
