The engineering science associate degree is a transfer program which meets a majority of the first and second year baccalaureate requirements for math, chemistry, biology and physics which are the foundation of an engineering or applied mathematics program of study. The transfer program has been developed in consultation with the University of New Hampshire’s College of Engineering and Physical Sciences to align program requirements for transfer purposes. The core courses in the program are also common to most undergraduate engineering programs. There are a wide variety of engineering-oriented programs that students have to choose from, however. This program offers students flexibility in the final year of the program to allow a direct path toward a career in the engineering disciplines or applied mathematics discipline.

This program improves upon the prior Liberal Arts concentration degree in the following ways:

  1. Students may transfer with true Junior status upon completion of this degree, subject to GPA requirements and choice of electives matching with the student’s desired transfer degree program
  2. Students have greater flexibility in selecting engineering, engineering technology, math or computing science electives with a view toward the desired program for the next phase.
  3. Students wishing to pursue a bachelor’s degree in mathematics or applied mathematics can do so with this degree.
  4. Students who place into 100-level or developmental mathematics may still complete the program but will require up to ten (10) additional math credits
  5. General education requirements do not exceed discovery program requirements at the University of New Hampshire with careful choice of courses

Requirements

Technical Standards

  1. Basic computer skills including software such as web browsers, office applications
  2. Good manual dexterity; adequate (basic) keyboarding skills
  3. Vision for reading on computer screen and printed material
  4. Critical thinking ability
  5. Ability to work independently as well as in small groups
  6. Be an effective communicator verbally, as in an office/work environment and write legibly

Transfer Credit Policy

In addition to Great Bay transfer credit policies, transfer of courses in the Engineering Science program that are designated MAJOR courses more than 10 years old will be evaluated by the program coordinator on an individual basis.
