Engineering

Associate in Science

The Engineering, A.S. is focused on providing students with the first two years of a baccalaureate degree in engineering. The program is designed to educate students to meet the challenge of engineering in an ever-changing world and to foster understanding of universal topics in engineering. At the baccalaureate degree level, students can choose to specialize in one of the following engineering disciplines:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering

For additional program information, please contact faculty advisor, Al Jou, at (609)343-4966/ajou@atlantic.edu, or contact area coordinator, Amy Shelton, at (609)343-4973/ashelton@atlantic.edu.

Upon Completion of this program students will be able to:

  • Define engineering and identify common engineering fields;
  • Design engineering graphics;
  • Identify the characteristics of forces and couples;
  • Explain the concepts of stress and strain;
  • Describe kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies.
