The engineering program is designed to provide the foundational courses for a student to successfully complete upper division course work to achieve a B.S. degree in one of seven engineering disciplines throughout the CSU system. In addition, the Stanley and Madalyn Hutchison Engineering Promise at TC has been established to provide financial and academic support for students enrolled in the TC Engineering Program. For an application and eligibility requirements, please visit the STEM website.

Engineers utilize a variety of technical, mathematic, creativity, and problem solving skills to design, develop, produce, and optimize new products and manufacturing methods. This program starts the development of these skills and qualifies the student to transfer and earn one of the following degree types: B.S. Engineering Science, B.S. Mechanical, Aerospace, Civil or Manufacturing Engineering, B.S. Electrical Engineering or B.S. Computer Engineering.

Engineering degrees require intensive math, science, and engineering course curriculum. They are also considered “high unit majors” and may require additional semesters to complete all required course work. Preparations in high school including pre-calculus, physics, chemistry and Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum will minimize any additional course work load. Development of an educational plan with counseling and engineering faculty and meeting with a counselor each semester is strongly encouraged and highly recommended.
