Why Engineering?


The Engineering Science program equips students with a broad understanding of engineering science for transfer to a four-year institution. Students will analyze and interpret quantitative data using mathematical/scientific concepts in engineering applications and solve engineering equations through the use of content-specific tools, software and simulations. Graduates may then pursue a bachelor’s degree in any field of engineering. Graduates have the opportunity to enter careers with very strong earning potential.
