The Engineering Science associate degree program prepares students for transfer to baccalaureate college and university programs in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, electrical engineering and biomedical engineering. The program also offers students currently employed in technical positions in high technology industries the opportunity to retrain and upgrade their technical skills.
