Engineering Science (ENR)

This program is for students planning to transfer upon graduation from Dutchess Community College to a four-year college granting a Bachelor of Science in an engineering discipline. Dutchess graduates readily transfer to established and respected educational institutions as third-year engineering students. Dutchess Community College’s engineering science program is designed so that our students develop the skill set needed to succeed in competitive four-year engineering programs in a variety of engineering disciplines. Our engineering science program provides the appropriate mix of math, science, engineering, and liberal arts as benchmarked by ABET (Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology) and recommended by TYESA (Two-Year Engineering Science Association). The Dutchess Community College Engineering Science program incorporates the following competencies: problem solving, design, teamwork, communication skills, quality and continuous improvement, and computer literacy.

Six advisement tracks are available to students to help them transfer to a specific engineering major at a four-year university or college.
• Biomedical Engineering • Computer Engineering
• Chemical Engineering • Electrical Engineering
• Civil and Environmental Engineering • Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering

It is recommended that students entering this program have completed high school Chemistry, Physics, and four units of high school Mathematics. Students without current college-preparatory courses in these areas may need more than two years to complete the engineering science program.

The Associate in Science (A.S.) degree is awarded upon completion of the requirements of this program.

Courses should be selected with an advisor.
