Engineering (106)
Associate in Science Degree

The program provides a solid basic background for transfer to a four-year college in various areas of engineering including Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, Electrical, Sanitary, Forestry, etc.  These recommended courses parallel the first two years of engineering curriculum at four-year colleges.  Students in the Engineering program have transferred to colleges and universities such as the University of Pittsburgh, The Pennsylvania State University - Erie Campus, and Youngstown State University among others.  In addition, students in the Engineering Program have an option to earn a certificate in Nanofabrication Technology from the The Pennsylvania State University - University Park. This is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) program.

Program Competencies 

The student/graduate will be able to:

  • Use computer technology to solve problems in science and engineering.
  • Apply mathematical and physical principles to solve problems in science and engineering.
  • Apply scientific procedures and laboratory methods correctly.

The majority of BC3 Engineering program credits for students who transfer to a four year institution in an engineering or an engineering related program will transfer.

Minimum - 63 credits


Third Semester (16/17)


Fourth Semester (13/14)


Note(s):


1 Science/Technical Course Electives include but are not limited to Electronics I (ELEC 221), Linear Algebra (MATH 230), Linear Circuit Analysis (ELEC 291), Object-Oriented Programming (COMP 238), Organic Chemistry I (CHEM 221), 3-D Geometric Modeling/Solidworks (DRFT 108), and Technical Graphics w/AutoCAD (DRFT 120).  Students interested in special areas of Engineering such as Chemical Engineering should take Organic Chemistry during the sophomore year. Students interested in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering should take Linear Circuit Analysis in the fourth semester.

Courses other than those recommended can only be considered Technical Electives if they are approved as such by the Dean of Natural Science and Technology.
