Engineering, Associate in Science
The Associate in Science Engineering degree program is designed to prepare engineering students to successfully transfer to baccalaureate engineering programs in the following areas: Biomechanical, Civil/Construction, Electrical, Industrial, Mechanical or General Engineering. Participants in the associate program will enroll in science, mathematics, engineering, and engineering technology courses that provide serious students with the knowledge and background necessary to take upper level courses in their chosen field of study as well as prepare them to participate in experiential learning opportunities in industry.
Students pursuing the Engineering degree can transfer into majors such as Civil/Environmental, Bioenvironmental, Mechanical, Electrical & Computing, Chemical, Biomedical, Industrial, and Materials Sciences Engineering. Many colleges offer opportunities for transfer both in and out of state. Admission is competitive and may require specific coursework to be completed prior to applying. Students are encouraged to work closely with OCC faculty and Advising Transfer Services. Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution in NJ can explore the “Transfer Programs” feature on NJ Transfer www.njtransfer.org.
