DRAFT CT State Community College Catalog 2023-2024
- New students enrolling for the first time in Fall 2023 will begin as students of Connecticut State Community College under this draft catalog.
- Continuing students from one of the 12 community colleges will be transitioned into a CT State program in this draft catalog as of the start of the Fall 2023 term.
- This catalog is a draft to be finalized in the Spring of 2023. The policies, courses and programs described are not applicable until the Fall 2023 term and may be updated as circumstances require.
As part of the Connecticut College of Technology (COT), the Engineering Science A.S. degree program prepares students primarily for transfer to complete a B.S. degree in chemical, civil, computer science, electrical, mechanical, industrial or materials engineering. Graduates will receive a background in engineering, mathematics, science, and general education courses for seamless transfer with junior status in a B.S. degree at COT partner universities.
Program Learning Outcomes:
- Apply engineering, mathematical, scientific and technological principles and concepts to identify and formulate solutions to engineering problems.
- Apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills to solve engineering problems.
- Demonstrate the ability to function on teams.
- Recognize the need to engage in life-long learning.
Through COT’s articulation agreement with partner universities, students who get an Associate degree in Engineering Science (with certain GPA’s) can transfer seamlessly at junior level to the following institutions: University of Connecticut, Central Connecticut State University, Southern Connecticut State University, Eastern Connecticut State University, Fairfield University, University of Hartford, University of New Haven, University of Bridgeport, Sacred Heart University, and Charter Oak State College.
