WHY CHOOSE ENGINEERING AT PPCC?



Engineering is currently 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. The Engineering transfer track is currently 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. 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. 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. 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 engineering advisors prior to or during the first term of study.
