About the Program
The Associate in Science in Engineering is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree program in one of the following engineering fields: aerospace, biomedical, bioproducts & biosystems, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, geological, material, mechanical, and general engineering.
In the Engineering program students will:
- Use cutting-edge digital design and 3D printing technologies to visualize and construct rockets, robots, and solar-powered cars
- Make a difference by inventing unique solutions to everyday problems
- Work individually and in teams to explore mechanical, electrical, chemical, and civil engineering
This program includes the courses usually required in the first two years of a baccalaureate engineering curriculum. Students are urged to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the major department in the college or university where they plan to transfer, and to consult with the Century College Advising, Counseling and Career Center for assistance in planning their program and selecting electives. Guide sheets are available in the Advising, Counseling and Career Center for many engineering fields and transfer institutions.

Our new state-of-the-art digital fabrication lab is aligned with MIT's highly successful fab lab network. In our "fab lab", you'll get to build all sorts of structures, machines, mechanisms, and circuits, including a rapid prototyping machine, laser cutter, CNC mini mill, and other machine tools.
The Engineering club allows you to do more than coursework and provides you with a network of colleagues that you can socialize with or do projects. Past projects include building a remote controlled semiautonomous robot and fabricating an electricity-producing wind turbine.
At the Century College Robot show you get to see all sorts of interesting contraptions. The public is invited to the show where Introduction to Engineering students display their inventions that are judged by practicing engineers.
In our popular Introduction to Engineering Class you'll "learn by doing" projects such as building a robot.
