Engineering

CCBC’s engineering degrees are designed for those seeking to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor’s of science degree in engineering.

Engineers make the world a better place by creating new innovations through the application of scientific and mathematical knowledge. Engineering is an exciting career that incorporates design work as well as applications. Engineers are problem solvers and follow diverse career paths. Whatever your interest is, there is probably an engineering field that encompasses it. As engineers are in demand, their starting salaries are often among the highest paid to college graduates.

The Engineering program prepares a student to transfer to a four-year school to complete a Bachelor’s of Science degree in engineering. The curriculum is calculus based with a strong emphasis on math and science (physics and chemistry). Courses taken during the first two years of an engineering degree are very similar for most engineering disciplines. The Engineering Associate of Science degree is designed to accommodate the requirements of most engineering disciplines with the exception of electrical and computer engineering. Students wanting to become computer or electrical engineers should pursue the respective Associate of Science in Engineering (A.S.E.) degree.

Engineering Design Project

Each semester, the Introduction to Engineering Design class (ENSC 101) is assigned a client by V-LINC. The client is generally afflicted with a disability that has provided them with a challenge in their life that may be remedied by a creative solution designed and built by the engineering class. This real world project gives the engineering student a look at the design process, experience with the trials and tribulations involved with working for a client, and an opportunity to make a real difference in a person’s life.
