Engineering – transfer to Bachelor of Science Degree Program*

Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems.  Their work is the link between scientific discoveries and the commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs.  Engineers develop new products, work in testing, production or maintenance, and supervisory engineers are responsible for major components of entire projects.  Most engineers specialize and there are over 25 major engineering specialties.
MCCC offers the first two years of course work towards a four year degree in an engineering curriculum.  Please refer to the MCCC General Engineering Transfer Pathway below.

*Most engineering transfer pathway courses transfer to engineering bachelor’s degree programs that are accredited by ABET’s Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC).

Engineering Technologies - Associate of Applied Science Degree and transfer to Bachelor of Engineering Technology Degree Program*

An engineering technologist is a specialist dedicated to the development and implementation of existing technology within a field of engineering. Engineering technology education is more applied than the more theoretical science-based engineering degree education. Technologists often work with engineers on a wide variety of projects by applying basic engineering principles and technical skills. Engineering technologists also may assume senior management positions in industry or become entrepreneurs.

The work of technologists is usually focused on the portion of the technological spectrum closest to product improvement, manufacturing, construction, and engineering operational functions. Engineering technology deals with the same topics as engineering, but the knowledge is more applied, as opposed to purely theoretical knowledge. The mathematics and basic sciences, as well as the technical courses, in technology programs are taught with more applications and less theory than related engineering courses.
