Engineering Science

Want to start your mechanical engineering studies closer to home, with smaller class sizes, more individualized instruction and less costly tuition? If so, our Engineering Science-Mechanical program is perfect for you. Along with these benefits, it prepares you to transfer to a four-year college where you will complete your studies and earn a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering.

Montco has transfer agreements with many major universities. For example, Temple University allows you to transfer as a junior into a mechanical engineering or civil engineering major. How fantastic is that! Earn an associate's degree in Engineering Science and then seamlessly transfer to Temple with only two years left for your bachelor's degree in engineering.

Program outcomes
  • Analyze and interpret fundamental engineering problems;
  • Apply the scientific method to derive solutions to fundamental engineering problems;
  • Derive models for solution based on learned methodologies and principles;
  • Apply computer-based analysis and solution software to engineering situations;
  • Show evidence of an ability to function effectively on teams;
  • Show evidence of an ability to communicate effectively.
