In the next 10 years, the need for scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and other technology workers in Southern Maryland will increase by 25-30 percent, according to estimates by the local economic development offices.

The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) has been gearing up for these new workforce demands and offers students a variety of beneficial programs in Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering.

The curriculum for the Engineering Consortium Associate of Science Degree covers the first two years of a four-year program in astronautical engineering. In addition to basic science, the program introduces students to the fundamental courses in electrical and electronics technology. This program is specifically designed for students who intend to transfer into Capitol College’s Bachelor of Science (BS) in Astronautical Engineering program.

If you want to enter any of these fields in Mathematics, Physics, or Engineering, you’ll need mathematical ability, problem-solving and analytical skills, an inquisitive mind, imagination, and initiative. The Engineering Consortium degree is specific to students looking to earn at least an associate’s degree and then transfer to earn your bachelor’s degree. CSM’s partnerships with local military facilities and universities make your career path seamless.
