Engineering Transfer Option, A.S.

This option provides students with the technical coursework and laboratory experience that enables them to succeed in undergraduate engineering programs. Students planning to transfer into Civil, Mechanical, Structural, Materials, or other related engineering degree programs should enroll in this option. Upon graduation from BHCC, students are able to pursue further study at four-year colleges and universities.

The Associate of Science in Engineering Program is offered as part of a response to the long-term shortage of skilled workers in the engineering workforce, and is consistent with the mission of the College. It is designed to meet the needs of BHCC students and to address the workforce demands of Greater Boston. The curriculum is structured to mirror the freshman and sophomore years of a university engineering degree. Accordingly, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Department is developing articulation agreements with area universities to enable BHCC engineering graduates to transfer as juniors upon completing the Associate of Science degree. The curriculum offers three options: a Biomedical Engineering Option , an Electrical Engineering Transfer Option , and this Engineering Transfer Option.


* Milestone Courses should be taken in the order shown. This will help you stay on track and graduate on time.
