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.
Total Number of Credits Required for Certificate: 31-34*
*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed transferable college credits from other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101 - Academic Development: Transitioning to College. This 1-credit course is designed to be taken in the first semester at CCBC. Students must provide an official transcript(s) from an accredited institution to document successful completion of college coursework for the ACDV 101 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.
