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 required core courses, along with the appropriate electives, apply to aerospace, chemical, or mechanical engineering.

If you know you’ll be transferring to a four-year college or university after finishing at CSM, an associate’s degree in Engineering allows you maximum flexibility. Students should check with an advisor at the transfer school of their choice to select transferrable courses.

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 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.
