This program provides students with the first two years of study toward a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university. Students take fundamental courses common to most engineering disciplines and continue their studies in specialized areas (electrical, mechanical, civil, chemical, aerospace and nuclear) after transferring.
Engineers use mathematics and science to convert the resources and forces of nature into useful products and processes. Engineers are team workers who plan, design, construct, operate and maintain devices and systems for the benefit of mankind.
Students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution are strongly advised to work with STLCC advisors to design a program that meets those requirements.
STLCC has articulation agreements with the University of Missouri-Rolla, University of Missouri-Columbia, Washington University, Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, Parks College of Saint Louis University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute that assure students of the transferability of specific courses.
Persons interested in engineering science should possess:
- A high school diploma or GED
- Strong math, science (including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, physics or chemistry) and writing skills
