Engineering Science (A.S.)

Study engineering science at JCC

The Engineering Science degree at Jamestown Community College prepares you for transfer to a four-year college or university to earn a bachelor’s degree in engineering. You can continue your study toward careers in mechanical, chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, ceramic, aerospace, nuclear, environmental, or metallurgical engineering.

JCC’s program provides a solid foundation in computer science, math, and physics alongside engineering principles and mechanics. You’ll choose program electives depending on the field you want to pursue, with sequences focusing on aerospace/mechanical/civil/industrial engineering, or chemical/biological/environmental engineering.

2020 median pay for architecture and engineering occupations: $83,160/year according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Where to study at JCC

Engineering skills

After you complete the program, you will be able to:

  • Apply differential calculus, integral calculus, and ordinary differential equations to the solution of engineering problems.
  • Create programming scripts that can be used in the solution of engineering level numerical analysis problems.
  • Identify and differentiate the various fields of engineering, including entrance requirements and ultimate career outcomes.
