Focuses upon building a foundation in the fields of mechanical, electrical, industrial, or civil engineering. Graduates will receive a background in mathematics, science and general education courses for transfer into a four-year program. Engineering Science also offers students currently employed in technical positions an opportunity to retrain and upgrade their technical skills. Differences in various areas of specialization in engineering allow students to choose electives with reference to their programs of study.
This two-year degree program offers a broad range of studies and topics in: mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering drawing and computer-aided design (CAD), electronics, and biomolecular sciences. Students completing this program are prepared to complete a four-year bachelor of science degree in Industrial Technology at CCSU’s College of Engineering and Technology.
The option also serves as a career-oriented degree for students who choose to enter the workforce in various laboratory environments such as an academic research laboratory, environmental laboratory, or medical laboratory. Prepares students for entry into the Biomolecular Sciences program at the College of Engineering and Technology at CCSU.
Students in this program specialize in either mechanical or architectural computer-aided drafting and will have the skills to enter the workforce in one of these fields upon completion of their two-year degree. For those wishing to continue their studies, this program prepares students for entry in to the Industrial Technology, Technology Management program at the College of Engineering and Technology at CCSU.
Students in this program specialize in electricity/electronics and will have the skills to enter the workforce in one of these fields upon completion of their two-year degree or for entry into the Industrial Technology, Technology Management program at the College of Engineering and Technology at CCSU.
After completion of this two-year program at Tunxis and another two years at CCSU, students will receive a bachelor of science degree in Engineering Technology. Several areas of specialization will be available at CCSU including civil, computer engineering, manufacturing, and mechanical. Prepares students for entry into the Engineering Technology department at the School of Technology at CCSU.
This program can lead to certification to teach technology education in grades K-12 in the public schools of Connecticut. In addition to careers in public school teaching, technology education graduates may also function as instructors or supervisors in private schools, industry, government, or rehabilitation programs. Coursework prepares students for entry into the Technology Education program at CCSU.
