Note: All science, engineering, and math courses that are pre or co-requisites of other science and engineering courses require a grade of C+ or better.

The Associate of Science in Engineering Program is offered as part of a response to the long-term shortage of skilled workers in the engineering workforce, and is consistent with the mission of the College. It is designed to meet the needs of BHCC students and to address the workforce demands of Greater Boston. The curriculum is structured to mirror the freshman and sophomore years of a university engineering degree. Accordingly, the Science and Engineering Department is developing articulation agreements with area universities to enable BHCC engineering graduates to transfer as juniors upon completing the Associate of Science degree. The curriculum offers two options: a Biomedical Engineering Option and an Engineering Transfer Option.

Option Overview

This option brings engineering design and technology into the field of biology and medicine. The option prepares students to transfer to four-year institutions as Biomedical Engineering majors, or for direct employment in entry-level positions.

Career Outlook

Graduates with an associate of science degree will be qualified for direct employment in entry-level research/lab assistant, design and manufacturing positions available in private industries, academic research institutions, and hospitals locally and nationwide.

Upon Completion of this Concentration Graduates will be able to:

  • Design and conduct experiments.
  • Analyze and interpret data.
  • Apply computational tools and scientific concepts to biomedical engineering problems.
  • Design systems, components, or processes for solving biomedical engineering problems.
  • Function as part of a biomedical engineering team.
  • Articulate the professional and ethical responsibilities required of engineers.
