  • Social and Behavioral Sciences 6 Credits.

Program Requirements and Electives - 33-35 Credits

Program Electives:

Select three or four courses based on number of credits and intended engineering discipline – civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical, etc.

Total Number of Credits Required for Degree: 63-65*

*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.

Program Description

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.

Program Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be able to:

  1. gain admission to a four-year engineering program;
  2. participate as an active member of an engineering design team;
  3. solve problems such as determining forces acting on a body using fundamental engineering design calculations;
  4. conduct tests for chemical components or strength of materials; and
  5. write and present reports on results of tests and/or mathematical analyses.
