Engineering Transfer Program

There will be many jobs for engineers during the next decade. However, your engineering specialization may determine such things as the geographic area where work may be found, salaries, job conditions, and tasks that will challenge you. Engineers earn considerably more than other people who enter a career path with just a bachelor's degree. Sometimes this can be as much as 75-100% more per month depending on geographic location and engineering specialty.

Engineering education is divided into such fields as aeronautical, agricultural, biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical, environmental, industrial, mechanical, nuclear, and petroleum. Additional information on various engineering specialties can be obtained from the American Society for Engineering Education.

An engineering degree can also open doors to other professions such as medicine, business administration, law, computer development or others. Or you may also wish to pursue further education and obtain a master's or doctoral degree in engineering.

  • Fundamentals of Chemistry I & II
