Engineers are professionals with competency in mathematics and the physical and technical sciences. For students who enjoy solving problems and working with technical or scientific equipment, and do well in mathematics and science, engineering science is a good choice of major. The college has a transfer agreement with Rutgers College of Engineering and the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Articulation agreements with many other engineering colleges facilitate transfer with full credit.

They study theoretical and applied science, mathematics, and engineering subjects. They learn to apply mathematics and science to technical operations. Students have the opportunity to study in small groups in an environment with close faculty contact. Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major? Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or completion of the appropriate course. Students also need a grade of “C” or better in high school algebra II, geometry, advanced algebra, trigonometry, laboratory chemistry and laboratory physics.

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all of the lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements with private institutions may provide similar transfer provisions. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
