A College of Technology Pathway
The Connecticut College of Technology is an innovative program leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in engineering or technology. The program consists of two distinct pathways, one in Engineering Science and one in Technology Studies. After completing the Technology Studies Pathway Program at Three Rivers, students may enter directly into technical fields at Central Connecticut State University or Charter Oak State College (Connecticut's External Degree Program). The Engineering Science Pathway leads directly into the School of Engineering at the University of Connecticut or the University of New Haven,
The pathway courses will transfer to engineering and technology programs at many other public and private universities as well.

The "Engineering Science Pathway" consists primarily of
coursework in engineering, mathematics, and the sciences. In
addition to the 65-credit core of courses shown below, a grade
average of "B" with no grade less than a "C" is required for
continuation at UConn's School of Engineering, or University of New
The "Engineering Science Pathway" focuses upon building a foundation in the fields of mechanical, industrial, or civil engineering. Graduates will receive a background in mathematics, science and general education courses for transfer into a four-year program. Engineering Science also offers students currently employed in technical positions an opportunity to retrain and upgrade their technical skills. Differences in various areas of specialization in engineering allow students to choose electives with reference to their programs of study. Core courses in Engineering Science may be offered at other Connecticut Community Colleges in cooperation with Three Rivers.
