With a shortage of qualified engineers in the United States, demand is high in this profession. CCBC’s Engineering program emphasizes strong qualitative and quantitative skills related to mathematics and science concepts. Students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills needed in the field of engineering. Students are prepared to either enter the workforce or transfer to a college offering a bachelor’s degree in engineering.

The program builds a strong background in computer aided drafting, engineering concepts, mathematics, physics, chemistry, C++ programming, robotics, and communication skills. Industry-standard software applications are used to develop classroom project solutions. Courses are comparable in content and expectations to the first two years of most engineering programs at a four-year institution.

Engineers can pursue careers in areas of business, research and development, education, health professions, industry, government, and computer information systems.

Program Outcomes:

Graduates will be able to

  1. Develop an engineering notebook.
  2. Use the necessary techniques and practices to produce a functional robot.
  3. Design and construct a functioning circuit board.
  4. Gather information related to possible career paths within the Engineering field.
