About the Program
The engineering programs are designed for those seeking a career as an engineer or as an engineering technician. The Engineering Science program, also called Engineering Transfer, prepares a student to transfer to a four year school to complete a Bachelors of Science degree in engineering. The curriculum is calculus based with a strong emphasis on math and science (physics and chemistry). Engineering Science courses are predominately theory based and prepare a student to do design work as well as applications. Engineering Technology is more application oriented and is not calculus based. After completion of an Engineering Technology A.A.S., students may pursue employment as an engineering technician in the civil or mechanical engineering fields, the two options offered within the program, or a related engineering field. Engineering technicians perform many of the functions of an engineer except for design, and generally work at the direction of an engineer.

Engineering Design Project
Each semester, the Introduction to Engineering Design class (ENSC 101) is assigned a client by the Volunteers for Medical Engineering. The client is generally afflicted with a disability that has provided them with a challenge in their life that may be remedied by a creative solution designed and built by the engineering class. This real world project gives the engineering student a look at the design process, experience with the trials and tribulations involved with working for a client, and an opportunity to make a real difference in a person’s life.
A number of scholarships are available for engineering students, some are need based and some merit based. They include: 1) MUST – Motivating Undergrads in Science and Technology, http://scholarships.hispanicfund.org/applications/, 2) Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation Defense Scholarship for Service Program (SMART) to recruit and retain civilian scientists and engineers to work in DoD agencies and laboratories, http://www.asee.org/smart. 3) CCBC Foundation Engineering Scholarships and CCBC Essex Foundation Engineering Scholarships – up to $1,500 per semester awarded by committee, contact email@example.com for information.
