Program Description

Associate in Science Degree

Engineers apply the rules of mathematics and physics using the materials and forces of nature, to develop solutions and products for the benefit of society. Engineers learn about the application of mathematics and physics principles to real life products and solutions; the processes by which today’s products and solutions were developed, and advancements in materials and applications that can lead to the improved or new products of tomorrow; the ethics and responsibilities behind the development of designs and products that will be used by society; and how to take ideas from theory to research lab to production.

The Engineering options at Massasoit are all focused on preparing students for transfer to four-year institutions for completion of their bachelor’s degree. The Engineering Transfer program is MassTransfer-compliant.

The Engineering Transfer – Civil option prepares students to continue their studies for a baccalaureate degree in Civil Engineering.

NOTE: This program may qualify for MassTransfer. Please visit the MassTransfer website to confirm if the program you are interested at Massasoit and a participating state university qualifies.


Massasoit offers three other engineering degrees:

Admittance into each is by open admission, but students enrolling in Engineering Transfer are required to have taken pre-calculus prior to their first semester.

All students in Engineering Transfer programs will learn how to apply principle of physics and mathematics to real life products and solutions, understand the processes in which today’s products and solutions are developed, and how advancements in materials and applications can lead to improved or new products.
