3 Program Purpose An excerpt from “A Call to Action: Reclaiming Our Competitive Advantage” by Dr. Frank Gornick reads: “are we ready to change our systems to find new ways for all students to succeed while capitalizing on partnerships with our communities to find measurable ways for all citizens to learn?... We can achieve this by staying focused on our principles of opportunity, democracy, affordability and access, which have created a culture that respects the individual and their ability to learn.”

4 Associate’s Degree Two year program designed to prepare engineering students for transfer to a four year university as a junior Upon transfer, students will jump right into the upper- division engineering coursework at the university Special focus is placed upon mechanical and civil coursework Students will be eligible to petition for an associate’s of science degree in engineering upon completion of their second year
