Engineering Science Program Information
This program prepares students for transfer, as juniors, into baccalaureate engineering programs, including civil, mechanical, chemical, electrical, aerospace, petroleum, industrial, and nuclear engineering. Graduates of the program must complete a total of 70.5-74.5 credit hours to receive an Associate of Science Degree that transfers easily into many four-year colleges, thanks in part to articulation agreements between MVCC and several four-year schools.
Articulation agreements between MVCC and other schools ease the transfer of most or all credits when students transfer to four-year colleges. MVCC has agreements with several four-year institutions, including:
- Syracuse University
- Clarkson University
- Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
- SUNY Albany
- SUNY Binghamton
- SUNY Buffalo
Students who transfer to other colleges carry with them our reputation for high academic standards.
- High School Mathematics Courses A and B or the equivalent are required.
- One year of laboratory science is required.
- Chemistry and Physics are recommended.
Many MVCC students gain excellent experience through summer internships at great locations around the state, including:
- Cornell University
- Clarkson University
- College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering at SUNY Albany
- Rome Labs
There are a variety of scholarships available to students from MVCC's Engineering Science Program, including:
Clarkson Transfer Leadership Award: This award gives $11,000 annually for transfer students who demonstrate leadership and outstanding academic achievement and choose to enroll at Clarkson.
Clarkson Transfer Achievement Awards: Clarkson awards $9,000 annually for transfer students who demonstrate leadership and outstanding academic achievement and choose to enroll at Clarkson.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Medal:
College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering Clinton Ray Carpenter Scholarship: Established by Dr. Clinton Ray Carpenter, this fund was created to provide scholarships to undergraduate students pursuing a bachelor’s degree at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering who are engineering, science or physics graduates of a community college. Preference is given to students who are engineering, science, or physics graduates of MVCC.
