As a kid, did you take apart your toys so you could figure out how to put them back together again? Do you enjoy mathematical equations? Are you known for being able to fix anything mechanical? If so, Allegany College of Maryland's Engineering program was designed with you in mind.

Thanks to our partnership with Frostburg State University and the University of Maryland, we'll prepare you for an easy transfer of credits towards your four-year degree in mechanical engineering.


SchematicsIf you're interested in mechanical engineering, our Engineering program allows you to dual enroll at our college and Frostburg State University in a collaborative program with the University of Maryland College Park. As a program student pursuing your Associate of Science degree in Engineering from our college, you'll take engineering courses at FSU while you complete other required courses at our campuses -- all for a fraction of the cost you would normally pay for the first two years of study at a four-year institution and in a small classroom setting that allows you to receive the personal attention you deserve.

Upon completion of our Engineering program, you'll be eligible to apply for admission to the University of Maryland, Clark School of Engineering to pursue your Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering continuing your coursework at Frostburg State University.

Course Info

As an Engineering program student, you'll expand your knowledge and gain career training through a variety of challenging courses.

You'll take the first two years of college courses at ACM with the exception of your engineering courses which you'll take at Frostburg State University. The total number of hours at both colleges each semester determine your full-time status as a student.

Your courses at ACM include:

  • English
  • The Humanities
  • Calculus I, II & III
  • Physics I & II
  • Social Sciences
  • Chemistry I & II
  • Differential Equations
  • Physical Activities

At FSU, you'll enroll in the following courses:

  • Intro to Engineering Design
  • Statics
  • Mechanics of Materials
  • Physics II
  • Dynamics

A full listing of program courses and their descriptions can be found in the credit catalog.
