Science, Engineering, and Technology - Programs of Study

A.A. Degree (Transfer)
Application Code 23 
For curriculum information, contact the Science, Engineering, and Technology Division—Room ST-248—443-518-1600.
This program is designed for students preparing to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree in engineering. Engineers apply principles of physics and mathematics in the design, development, implementation, and maintenance of materials, structures, and systems. Specific applications of engineering include aerospace, biological resources, ceramic/materials, chemical, civil, environmental, industrial, manufacturing, and mechanical. In addition to acquiring a solid background in chemistry, mathematics, and physics, students enrolled in this program will acquire a strong foundation in engineering theory and will engage in project-based laboratory experiences. This program is specifically designed to transfer to UMCP’s Engineering program. Students interested in this curriculum, however, are advised to check the requirements of the institution to which they intend to transfer. 
Students enrolled in transfer patterns must take a
minimum of 30 credits in General Education. Each student’s
total of general education and required courses must equal
at least 60 semester hours of credit.
