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 Entry Term Special Notes H.S. Average
Algebra, geometry, algebra II and pre-calculus or 4 units of equivalent academic math, chemistry and physics w/labs. (90 or above in each course) Fall and Spring 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 or above

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