Academic Catalog

Engineering, Associate in Science (EGR)

Effective: Fall 2016

The Engineering program is a two-year preparatory curriculum for students who plan to continue their education at a four-year institution and complete their major in an engineering science field.

Upon successful completion of this program, students should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of key concepts in the physical, mathematical, and computational sciences.
  • Apply mathematical and scientific concepts and principles to engineering problems.
  • Present technical information in written or graphic form.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the academic and career aspects of various disciplines within engineering or engineering technology, select a particular discipline, and develop an academic plan consistent with the chosen discipline.

The College Transfer Office is set up to help Delaware County Community College students transfer to four-year colleges and universities. If you are planning to transfer, you are strongly encouraged to meet with a transfer advisor within your first two semesters (or before you reach 30 transferable college credits from all institutions attended).
