Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Students in Erie Community College’s Engineering Science and Computer Science associate degree programs will now be able to transfer up to 66 credits to Syracuse University’s L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science, ECC President Jack Quinn announced Tuesday.


According to the new transfer agreement, once the student completes his or her associate degree in engineering science or computer science with the required grade-point average at ECC, the student will be accepted into the following baccalaureate degree programs at Syracuse University: Aerospace Engineering, Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Computer Science.


“By taking advantage of this transfer agreements, students not only save time and money, but have time to adjust to college life without the worry of what courses will or will not transfer to a four-year school,” Quinn said.  


Many students planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree begin their academic careers at ECC. The college has transfer agreements with more than 30 leading colleges and universities, including Alfred State University, Buffalo State College, Canisius College, Clarkson University, Daemen College, D’Youville College, the State University of New York at Fredonia, Niagara University, Rochester Institute of Technology and the State University of New York at Buffalo.
