If you're interested in a well-paying career that applies the principles of science and math to develop cost-effective solutions to technical problems, Cecil College's engineering transfer program may be ideal for you.

What is distinctive?

To accommodate your busy schedule, we offer the flexibility of day, evening, and weekend classes at our main campus in North East. You'll be prepared to transfer to a four-year institution to complete your bachelor's degree. Cecil offers associate of science degrees in the following engineering specialties:

  • Engineering Science—learn to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering, and use the techniques, skills, and modern tools necessary for engineering practice
  • Aerospace—learn to design, develop and test aircraft, spacecraft and missiles, and supervise the manufacture of these products
  • Chemical—learn to solve problems involving the production or use of chemicals and biochemicals
  • Civil—learn to design and supervise the construction of roads, roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and water supply and sewage systems
  • Computer—learn to design, develop, and manage systems that process, store, and transmit information
  • Electrical—learn to design and analyze components and systems that use electrons and photons
  • Mechanical—learn to research, develop, design, manufacture and test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices

What is required?

You'll be required to take preparatory math and science courses to be admitted into the engineering programs. Depending on your area of study, you'll complete from 63-65 credit hours of courses. Also, depending on your engineering specialty, you may be required to take additional courses to complete the transfer program.

Where will it lead?

Thanks to regional developments, engineering careers are on the rise—exceeding the national employment average. Most entry-level engineering jobs do require a bachelor's degree. Your Cecil education will prepare you to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to complete your degree.

Does Cecil have articulation agreements with other institutions?

Cecil has an articulation agreement with the University of Delaware in Civil Engineering.

Frostburg State University has partnered with Cecil College to offer a collaborative 2+2 Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Materials Engineering concentration, on Cecil’s North East campus.​​​​
