Engineering has been a longstanding career option for students who are interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, this field is projected to grow, with an estimated 139,000 new jobs by 2026. Manor College recognizes this significant growth and has launched an Engineering Science associate’s program.
What is the program?
The Engineering Science program consists of courses in chemistry, physics, mathematics, engineering design and more. There are two tracks to choose from—Engineering Science Transfer Track and a Career Track. The Engineering Science Track will prepare students to enter a Bachelor’s degree-granting program while the Career Track will help students launch their career with an associate’s degree in Engineering Science. Some possible career opportunities with this program include: electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, test engineering and more!
Why should students choose this program?
Manor prides itself on providing accessible and affordable education. College is an investment. 94% of students at Manor receive financial aid. Scholarships, grants and work study positions are also available—we want education to be as readily available as possible. In addition to our price tag, students receive personalized attention which sets them up for success upon graduation. Manor College’s Engineering Science program can also provide students with the opportunity to prepare for the rigorous curriculum of an engineering program they choose. Manor’s instructors and advisors can work with students to help determine their career path.
“Manor College is continuing to provide more opportunities for our students. We are excited to launch two new Associate programs in Engineering. These will be the first new programs since our successful launch of Bachelor’s programs in 2018. These programs will allow students to either start a career as an Engineer Technician or build a strong foundation to continue their education is an Engineering Science program.”, stated Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, Marc Minnick.
