Embracing a strong core of courses in chemistry, mathematics, and physics, and including basic English and humanities sequences, this program is augmented by basic engineering courses essential to all engineering disciplines. The primary objective of our program is to provide you with a basic two years of study in order to continue your education at the baccalaureate level in any of the engineering disciplines.


  • The program is structured so that most students do not need to decide upon an engineering discipline until the last semester of the second year, allowing them to carefully investigate disciplines and institutions.
  • Students develop laboratory techniques and skills using modern engineering tools.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, physics, and chemistry to solve engineering problems.
  • Integrate the concepts of mathematics, sciences, and humanities in engineering courses.
  • Develop student computational proficiency to analyze and interpret data in solving engineering problems.
  • Develop laboratory techniques and skills using modern engineering tools, including documentation and engineering reports, which reinforce and advance theoretical concepts.
  • Communicate effectively with clear, critical thinking skills and broaden understanding of self and society through the general education requirements.

Direct Entry Into Baccalaureate Degree Program

Alfred State engineering science graduates may enter directly into either the interdisciplinary studies BTech or the technology management BBA degree program.

Employment Statistics

Employment and continuing education rate of 100 percent – 100 percent continued their education.
