Program Description
Students who complete this program earn an Associate in Science degree. The program provides basic preparation for students who plan to continue engineering studies at a four-year college. Applicants should have above-average grades in high school mathematics and chemistry. High school physics is recommended. Applicants with deficiencies in science or mathematics may be accepted and given an opportunity to complete appropriate courses to strengthen their background before acceptance into the program.

Students may choose from four concentrations:

The College's Engineering Science Program is affiliated with the Two-Year Engineering Science Association (TYESA) and the Association of Engineering Colleges of New York State (AECNYS).

Student Learning Outcomes
At the completion of the AS Engineering Science Degree program, a student will be able to
• Effectively write grammatically correct essays with a focused main idea, logically developed with supporting details including the incorporation of information from secondary sources, properly cited;
• Critically read and orally present researched information in an organized, effective manner;
• Demonstrate the ability to conduct and document research, including gathering information, logically analyzing problems, drawing inferences, and proposing solutions;
• Apply appropriate mathematical procedures and quantitative methods to solve practical problems in mathematics and in engineering science;
• Demonstrate an understanding of scientific principles of inquiry including hypothesis formation, designing and conducting experiments, and formulating conclusions in chemistry and physics;
• Demonstrate an understanding of good laboratory practice;
• Understand and critically analyze human society, behavior, and our institutions;
• Demonstrate knowledge of the arts, such as literature, philosophy, music, visual arts and/or performing arts and their relationship with history, society and culture;
• Utilize the computer to analyze engineering problems and designs of equipment, structures, mathematical processes, and numerical analysis through use of original source code in higher-level languages;
• Learn to think analytically as an engineer, including concepts of spatial relationships, drawing, descriptive geometry, vector analysis, and CAD.CAM systems;
• Become familiar with internal logic circuitry of computer programming, data structures, and overall internal computer organization;
• Demonstrate the ability to analyze electric circuits in the time-and-phasor-domains using techniques such as nodal and mesh analysis, Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits, transient analysis of first-and second-order circuits, and phasor analysis of one-and three-phase circuits;
• Apply chemistry and physics principles to practical analysis of mechanics, materials, and electronics.

Employment Potential
Graduates of the program transferring to four-year institutions to pursue baccalaureate and higher degrees will easily find employment in the various fields of engineering represented in this curriculum, including aeronautical, civil, chemical, computer, electrical, industrial, mechanical, and nuclear.

Requirements for Program Entry

  • High School diploma or equivalent
  • Satisfactory placement in Entering Student Assessment

Developmental Assistance Available
For students who do not meet basic reading and math requirements, or who have other learning issues, extra assistance is readily available through SUNY Ulster's Learning Center, Patrik Math Center, the Writing Center, the Peer and Friend Tutor Program, and English as a Second Language (ESL) tutors.
