Welcome to the Engineering Science Program at LaGuardia Community College.The Engineering Science program is a dual-joint program offered by LaGuardia and the City College of New York (CCNY), consisting of four tracks: Civil, Earth System Science & Environmental, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering. After completing the AS degree at LaGuardia, students will transfer to (CCNY) or another senior college in order to obtain the BS degree in Engineering. The program offers a seamless transition to the upper division of the baccalaureate program at CCNY provided the student satisfies transfer requirements. The bachelor’s degree from CCNY is fully accredited by New York State and by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Programmatic goals are to provide students with a solid background in the core curriculum of engineering during the first two years, and to prepare them to pursue baccalaureate degrees in engineering in subsequent years. Transferring students are expected to perform as well as (or better than) students matriculating directly at CCNY. The program officially started in the fall of 2005; since then articulation agreements with SUNY at Stony Brook, NYC Tech, and Vaughn College have been established in order to offer students more transfer opportunities.The mission of the Engineering Science Program is to prepare students during the first two years of their engineering education in the following tracks: Civil, Earth System Science & Environmental, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering. The program will provide students with the requisite critical thinking, technical, and analytical skills along with a strong mathematical and science background for future study in four-year engineering schools, enabling them to ultimately succeed as professionals in the workplace. This is accomplished in two stages. In stage 1, students are taught the basic mathematics and science required for the curricula; remedial mathematics is available to those who are ill-prepared. In stage 2, students take actual engineering courses, and are exposed to formal principles of engineering and hands-on laboratory projects in a nurturing and supportive environment.
