Engineering Science AS - Bioengineering


Bioengineering: 411A
Engineering Science AS

This track will prepare students to transfer to a four-year university with a major in bioengineering. Specific requirements in colleges vary, and the student preparing for a particular institution may, with approval, change the sequence listed below; this sequence of courses is articulated with the bioengineering program at the University of Maryland, College Park. A suggested course sequence for full-time students follows; all students should consult an engineering adviser. The student should also visit the Montgomery College Engineering Advising website at for up-to-date comprehensive information.

First Semester
CHEM 132 Principles of Chemistry II   (NSLD) 4
ENGL 102 Critical Reading, Writing, and Research (ENGF) 3
ENES 100 Introduction to Engineering Design 3
MATH 181 Calculus I  (MATF) 4
  Health Foundation 1
Second Semester
ENES 102 Statics 3
ENES 120 Biology for Engineers 3
MATH  182 Calculus II 4
PHYS 161 General Physics I  (NSND) 3
  Behavioral and social science distribution* 3
Third Semester
CHEM  203 Organic Chemistry I 5
MATH 280 Multivariable Calculus 4
PHYS 262 General Physics II  (NSLD) 4
  Behavioral and social science distribution * 3
Fourth Semester
ENES 220 Mechanics of Materials 3
MATH 282 Differential Equations 3
ENES 232 Thermodynamics 3
  Arts distribution  3
  Humanities distribution  3
Total credit hours 62
*  The behavioral and social sciences courses must be from different disciplines.

▪    Most engineering students will start at MC missing one or more prerequisites for CHEM 131, CHEM 132, CHEM 135, ENGL 102, ENES 100, and MATH 181.
▪    The appropriate initial chemistry courses will be determined by the student’s score on the Chemistry Placement xam, mathematics level, AP/IB credits, or transfer credits. Possible courses include CHEM 099, CHEM 131, CHEM 132, or CHEM 135. Either CHEM 132 or CHEM 135 satisfies the required chemistry credit for UMCP. CHEM 131-132 satisfies the required chemistry credit for UMBC, but CHEM 135 does not.
▪    The prerequisite for ENGL 102 is ENGL 101 or ENGL 101A. English course placement is determined by the Accuplacer English/Reading Test.
▪    The corequisite for ENES 100 is MATH 180 or higher.
▪    The prerequisite for MATH 181 is MATH 180 (Precalculus). Mathematics initial course placement will be determined by the Accuplacer Math Test, AP/IB credit, or transfer credits.
▪    ENES 120 (3) is a gateway course for transfer to the bioengineering program at UMCP. BIOE 121 (1) lab will remain to be taken at UMCP.
▪    BIOE 121, 241, 371; and BSCI 330 for which MC has no equivalents, must be completed after transfer or through MTAP at UMCP.

Program Outcomes for the Engineering AS Degree - Bioengineering

Upon completion of this program a student will be able to:

  • Identify, formulate and solve basic physics, biology problems in biomechanics and biochemistry.
  • Integrate engineering and life sciences to build solid foundation in bioengineering applications.
  • Use computer application software in bioengineering.
