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 two options: a Biomedical Engineering Option and an Engineering Transfer Option.

Option Overview

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, Electrical, 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.

Career Outlook

Graduates completing a four-year degree will have a strong engineering foundation and able to select from a variety of high demand fields for the balance of their training. Such high demand fields include Nanotechnology, Materials, and Robotics.

Upon Completion of this Concentration Graduates will be able to:

  • Design and conduct experiments.
  • Analyze and interpret data.
  • Apply computational tools and scientific concepts to engineering problems.
  • Design systems, components, or processes for solving engineering problems.
  • Function as part of an engineering team.
  • Articulate the professional and ethical responsibilities required of engineers.
