Meet Associate Professor of Engineering, Christine Delahanty, and learn about the Bucks Engineering transfer major and AAS degree in Applied Engineering Technology.

The College received an Advanced Technology Education grant from the National Science Foundation to develop the AAS degree program in collaboration with Drexel University.  This degree is occupational with an option to transfer to a four-year program.

Bucks engineering courses transfer seamlessly to four-year colleges and universities.  Our rigorous engineering curriculum was established in conjunction with four-year institutions, and our courses utilize the same texts and course curricula used in many four-year engineering colleges and universities. 

We now offer sophomore level statics, dynamics, strength of materials and electric circuits with lab courses.  

We use state-of-the-art equipment for classes and laboratories.  This equipment includes new oscilloscopes, digital multi-meters, and function generators, as well as apparatus for mechanical and thermodynamics labs.

Advising.  Associate Professor of Engineering, Christine Delahanty, also teaches at The College of New Jersey and is familiar with the demands and responsibilities of junior and senior engineering majors.  She has over ten years of experience in industry, and advises students with respect to different concentrations of the engineering major, as well as what to expect in the workforce.

Official video entry for the NSF Community College Innovation Challenge:

The Society of Bucks Engineers showcased the Wind Catcher Max wind tower, an alternative energy solution that recycles water. Its construction is lighter and more transportable than standard wind towers; and it is ecologically more favorable than solar panels that require large areas of land, and wind turbines that kill wildlife. 

Bucks engineering students (Aneeqa Karu, Pavel Lelyukh and Jim Napoli) were selected as finalists and will be competing this summer in the Washington, D.C. area at a three-day Community College Innovation Challenge Boot Camp.
