Why Choose Pre-Engineering at PPCC?
Pre-Engineering is designated as an Other Program and Course of Study. This course of study is led by the Mathematics Department in the Division of Math and English. Pre-Engineering is designed for students who are interested in the field of engineering and plan to begin at PPCC and continue on for their bachelors at a 4-year university. You will work closely with an Advisor to identify your goals and plan your degree to meet your needs and those of the school where you plan to transfer.
Pre-Engineering at PPCC
At PPCC, students get the opportunity to experience different types of Engineering. Not only do you get to participate in these opportunities but you can connect with industries and begin to build engineering experience for your resume and career field.
This program emphasizes the foundation for the engineering field you choose, such as:
- Computer Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Biomedical Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Nearly any Engineering Degree
We have a large list of schools that offer agreements for degrees in engineering with PPCC. Get started here and finish there.
The transfer track offers students the requisite fundamental engineering sciences background and the strong mathematical foundation necessary for pursuing upper-level classes in engineering. Because of the varied differences of freshman and sophomore level courses needed for specific engineering programs, it is strongly recommended that students plan a program of study with pre-engineering advisors prior to or during the first term of study. The transfer track, while not necessarily resulting in an AS degree, does offer the equivalent of the course work of the first two years of college engineering studies in preparation for transfer to an engineering school.
What are graduates doing now?
PPCC alumni have moved on to work with engineering companies, aerospace companies, research programs, and government space agencies.
Other graduates have moved on to four-year institutions to continue their education with single and double majors.
