The challenges we face in this century, such as the depletion of natural resources, increasing energy needs, environmental pollution, and population growth, require a new generation of dynamic engineers to tackle them.
The SUNY Online A.S. in Engineering Science from Finger Lakes Community College provides a core education in mathematics, science, and introductory engineering, and will prepare you to pursue a bachelor's degree in any engineering field. The curriculum has calculus, physics, chemistry, engineering graphics, computer programming, mechanics, thermodynamics, electric circuits, strength of materials, and engineering design. Gear up for an engineering career that features invention and innovation, or hone your analytical skills and transfer into a four-year program that builds on your math, science, and tech abilities.
Solve foundational engineering problems related to mechanics and electricity. Integrate engineering skills of analysis, computing, and graphics into an applied engineering design project. Learn to communicate the results of engineering problems effectively to peers and supervisors.
After successfully completing this program, you'll be able to transfer to a four-year engineering school in junior standing for the engineering discipline of your choice. The engineering program at Finger Lakes is a member of the State University of New York Two Year Engineering Science Association (SUNY-TYESA), which creates a partnership between two-year engineering programs and four-year engineering schools, and facilitates a seamless transfer process. Graduates with an associate degree in engineering have successfully transferred to four-year institutions, including the online electrical engineering degree from Stony Brook University - an ABET-accredited program.
Is an online engineering degree worth it?
An online engineering degree is the same as a face-to-face program. Students enrolled in the two-year engineering degree learn from the same faculty experts as students sitting in the classroom. When you graduate with your engineering degree from Finger Lakes Community College, your degree never says "online." You earn an Associate of Science in Engineering Science, a degree that allows you to transfer to a 4-year online engineering program or start an internship.
Study engineering full-time or part-time online at SUNY. Choose an engineering specialization to tailor your education to your career goals. Specializations in the engineering program are Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Industrial Engineering.
