School of Math, Science & Engineering


Math, Science & Engineering Office: (505) 224-3561, Academic Advisement and Career Development: (505) 224-4321.


Program Description

The engineering degree includes foundation courses in math and the sciences, introducing the concepts and methods of engineering. The associate’s degree is designed as the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in engineering and graduates are encouraged to continue their studies in a specified area of engineering at a four-year institution. Students planning to transfer to a bachelor of science degree program are advised to refer to the catalog of their intended transfer institution before making course selections.

Career and Educational Opportunities

Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop useful objects or processes that meet the needs of commerce and society. The major functions of all branches of engineering include development and design, construction, production, testing and maintenance. According to the U.S. Labor Department, the demand for engineers is expected to grow approximately eight percent over the next decade. Engineering offers a wide range of opportunities in a variety of specialized areas: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Industrial Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Petroleum Engineering and Surveying Engineering.

Transfer and articulation agreement information is available at cnm.edu/transferout.

Special Requirements

Students are strongly encouraged to contact the school of Math, Science & Engineering before selecting specific courses in the Computer Science or Engineering Elective categories. Courses in these categories must be chosen appropriately to fulfill the requirements of the specific baccalaureate Engineering degree the student wishes to pursue.

Exit competencies (see Program Exit Competencies ) for this program of study are available at cnm.edu/exitcomp.
