Email address: OwejanJP@alfredstate.edu

Embracing a strong core of courses in chemistry, mathematics, and physics, and including basic English and humanities sequences, this program is augmented by basic engineering courses essential to all engineering disciplines.

The primary objective of this program is to provide a basic two years of study for students who wish to continue their education at the baccalaureate level in any of the engineering disciplines. With a baccalaureate degree, opportunities for employment exist in the civil, computer, electrical, environmental, mechanical, nuclear, chemical, and aerospace industries. Opportunity for advancement is excellent, and the financial return is high for those with ability and ambition.

Alfred State is a member of the SUNY Two-Year Engineering Science Association (TYESA). The purpose of this organization is to facilitate the transfer of engineering science graduates to New York State universities with accredited engineering programs. Recent Alfred State engineering science graduates have successfully transferred to Alfred University, Binghamton University, Clarkson University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Rochester Institute of Technology, NYS College of Ceramics at Alfred University, University at Buffalo, and Syracuse University.

PROGRAM STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

Apply knowledge of mathematics, physics, and chemistry to solve engineering problems.

Integrate the concepts of mathematics, sciences, and humanities in engineering courses.

Develop student computational proficiency to analyze and interpret data in solving engineering problems.

Develop laboratory techniques and skills using modern engineering tools, including documentation and engineering reports, which reinforce and advance theoretical concepts.

Communicate effectively with clear, critical thinking skills and broaden understanding of self and society through the general education requirements.

DIRECT ENTRY INTO BACCALAUREATE DEGREE PROGRAM

Alfred State engineering science graduates may enter directly into the technology management BBA degree program.

EMPLOYMENT STATISTICS

Employment and transfer rate of 100 percent – 100 percent transferred to continue their education.
