Return to Engineering Science AS     

This curriculum is designed to provide the first two years of a four-year program leading to the award of a BS in engineering. A student planning to transfer to any baccalaureate degree granting institution should follow the appropriate track listed below in consultation with an engineering advisor. The student should also visit the Montgomery College Engineering Advising website for up-to-date comprehensive information on transfer requirements for all universities and colleges with which we have an articulated transfer program.

Completion of all requirements for any track in engineering science will lead to the award of the AS in engineering science.

This track will prepare students to transfer to a four-year university with a major in aerospace engineering. Specific requirements in colleges vary, and the student preparing for a particular institution may, with approval, change the sequence listed below; this sequence of courses is articulated with the aerospace engineering program at the University of Maryland, College Park. A suggested course sequence for full-time students follows; all students should consult an engineering adviser. The student should also visit the Montgomery College Engineering Advising website at for up-to-date comprehensive information.

Advising Notes

  • Most engineering students will start at MC missing one or more prerequisites for CHEM 131 , CHEM 132 , CHEM 135 , ENGL 102 , ENES 100 , and MATH 181 .
  • The appropriate initial chemistry courses will be determined by the student’s score on the Chemistry Placement Exam, mathematics level, AP/IB credits, or transfer credits. Possible courses include CHEM 099 , CHEM 131 , CHEM 132 , or CHEM 135 . Either CHEM 132  or CHEM 135  satisfies the required chemistry credit for UMCP. CHEM 131 -CHEM 132  satisfies the required chemistry credit for UMBC, but CHEM 135  does not.
  • The prerequisite for ENGL 102  is ENGL 101  or ENGL 101A . English course placement is determined by the Accuplacer English/Reading Test.
  • The corequisite for ENES 100  is MATH 165  or higher.
  • The prerequisite for MATH 181  is MATH 165  (Precalculus). Mathematics initial course placement will be determined by the Accuplacer Math Test, AP/IB credit, or transfer credits.
  • UMCP’s ENAE 200 (1) and 283 (3) for which MC has no equivalents, remain to be taken at UMCP. Students need to take ENAE 283 in order to achieve full junior standing upon transfer. This must be done in summer term prior to fall term transfer.
  • CMSC 140  (3) and ENES 240  (3) combined can be equivalent to ENAE 202 (3).

Program Outcomes

Upon completion of this program a student will be able to:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve basic physics and engineering problems in mechanics and thermodynamics.
  • Design simple mechanisms and structures using analytical and numerical methods in the area of aerospace engineering.
  • Use appropriate computer programming and application software in aerospace engineering.
