No. of Credits: 60-61
Contacts: A. Ronaldi, Chair, Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Division

Upon completing the engineering curriculum, students may transfer to a Bachelor of Science degree program in engineering, or enter the job market as engineering and physical science technicians. Graduates may be eligible for the Cooperative Experience Employment Education (CO-OP) Program with the University of Maryland and NAVAIR. Information on this CO-OP program can be obtained from the Advising and Career Services Department. Students may need to strengthen their skills before taking required courses. The required core courses along with the appropriate electives apply to mechanical, aerospace, electrical, chemical and civil engineering.

The maximum number of credits accepted in transfer from other institutions to this program is 45.


Career Opportunities:

engineering technician, physical science technician, broadcast technician

Transfer Options:

A complete list of all transfer opportunities can be found on the Transfer Services page

Student Learning Outcomes:

Students will

  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering to identify, formulate  and solve engineering problems
  2. Communicate effectively in oral, written, and graphical form
  3. Analyze the impact of engineering  solutions in a global , economic, and societal context 
  4. Identify the professional and ethical responsibilities of engineers
  5. Participate effectively as a member of a multi-disciplinary team

Required Courses and Recommended Sequence:

The following is a recommended sequence of courses for completing this program. College Prep and prerequisite course requirements, credit load, and/or course availability may affect a student’s individual progress. Course availability within the program sequences is specifically intended for full-time students who begin their course work with the fall semester. Students should always consult their online program evaluation or an academic advisor to better understand typical course availability and individual program planning.

Humanities (3 credits)


Elective (5-6 credits)


  • See Elective course listing above

Social/behavioral sciences (6 credits)


Elective Notes:

NOTE: lecture and lab must both be taken to complete this requirement.

Students interested in the University of Maryland/Navy Partnership Program for Mechanical Engineering should elect EGR 2200 , EGR 2210 ,  EGR 2320 , and EGR 2726  .

Students interested in pursuing a B.S. in Chemical Engineering upon transfer should elect CHE 2200 /CHE 2200L   and CHE 2210 /CHE 2210L   after completing CHE 1200  /CHE 1200L   and CHE 1210  /CHE 1210L 

Students interested in pursuing a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering should elect EGR 2200  , EGR 2320 , EGR 2222  , and MTH 2220 .

Southern Maryland Partnership Agreement

The following plan is for Mechanical Engineering students from the College of Southern Maryland to transfer to the University of Maryland through the Southern Maryland Partnership Agreement:


Arts (3 credits)


Humanities (3 credits)


Social/behavioral sciences (3 credits)


Social/behavioral sciences (3 credits)


University of Maryland Transfer Notes:

University of Maryland, Clark School of Engineering has the following minimum transfer requirements (these are the same for UMCP students transferring into the engineering school):


1. Students must have at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA in all college-level work at all colleges attended (2.999 is not acceptable).

2. Students must have taken the following gateway courses:

a. ENG-1010 or equivalent, with a minimum grade of C

b. A general education humanities or social sciences course, with a minimum grade of C

c. CHE-1350 (Chemistry for Engineers) or CHE-1210/1210L (Chemistry II), with a minimum grade of C

d. MTH-1210 (Calculus II), with a minimum grade of B

e. PHY-1210 (Physics I), with a minimum grade of B

3. Grade and Retake Policy:  Only one gateway or performance review course may be repeated to earn the required grade and that course may only be repeated once. When more than one course can satisfy a gateway requirement, taking a second course from the list will count as a repeat. (Please note that a grade of “W” is considered an attempt and must be repeated).
