EUGENIO MARIA DE HOSTOS COMMUNITY COLLEGE
OF THE CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK
DIVISION OF ACADEMIC AFFAIRS
JOINT PROGRAM IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING :
Eugenio María de Hostos Community College (HCC) and the City College of New York propose to offer an Associate in Science (AS) degree in Mechanical Engineering Science as a jointly registered, dual admission program with the existing Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering (B.E./M.E.) at the City College of New York (CCNY). The program has been designed to meet the licensure guidelines of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The program will provide HCC students with the same curriculum as the first two years of the licensure qualifying mechanical engineering program required at CCNY. Upon successful completion of the lower division at HCC, students will have a seamless transition to the upper division of the baccalaureate program at CCNY. The dual/joint program will offer increased educational opportunities for Hispanics, African Americans and other underrepresented minorities in science and engineering fields who might otherwise be denied access to higher education. The collegial nature of the program will facilitate the transition to the professional portion of the curriculum. Mechanical Engineering Science students will enroll in the existing science and mathematics courses at Hostos and will enroll in the seven engineering courses at CCNY until there is sufficient enrollment to offer the courses on the Hostos campus.
Students entering the program will be granted dual admission to HCC and CCNY. CCNY guarantees admission to HCC students who complete the A.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering Science described in this document.
