Bulmer Telecommunications Center, Room 220, (518) 629-7358

The Engineering Science program parallels the first two years of four-year college programs in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and various engineering fields. Graduates with good academic records are able to transfer to many four-year engineering colleges with junior standing.

A maximum of three engineering courses may be transferred into the program.

PROGRAM ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS
Courses Notes High School Average
Math I, II & III and Math 12 or 4 units of equivalent academic Math, Chemistry and Physics w/lab (90 or above in each course) For high school students: additional math recommended.
For transfer students or HVCC students changing curriculum: "B" or higher in MATH 180 Calculus I and one of either CHEM 110 General Chemistry I, CHEM 120 Chemistry I or PHYS 150 Physics I or "C" or higher in (all three) MATH 180, CHEM 110 or CHEM 120, and PHYS 150. Equivalent courses are acceptable.
90+

The estimated cost of books for the student enrolled in the first full-time term as outlined would be approximately $760.
