What Will I Learn in JCCC’s Engineering Courses?

When you study engineering, you learn how to convert science and technology into something tangible and useful to humanity. At JCCC, you’ll learn the technical basics and problem-solving skills needed to succeed in your junior- and senior-level engineering courses at a four-year school.

With a degree in your chosen discipline, you’ll be able to analyze the needs of society using your technical competence and develop workable solutions.

Courses you’ll likely take as a pre-engineering student include:

  • Calculus I, II and III
  • Linear algebra
  • Differential equations
  • Engineering Physics I and II
  • Engineering graphics, statics and dynamics
  • Computer science
  • Chemistry
  • Communications, humanities and social science requirements

In JCCC’s Engineering courses, you’ll learn about:

  • Engineering disciplines and academic requirements
  • Fundamental engineering concepts
  • The engineering design process
  • CAD commands for using computer-aided drafting (CAD) software
  • The action of forces, including vectors, force systems, equilibrium, moment of inertia, and more
  • Engineering mechanics including displacement, velocity, acceleration, work-energy and momentum

Why JCCC’s Engineering Courses?

The Engineering courses you take at JCCC cover the same material at the same level of rigor as at four-year schools. Meet your general education requirements — even earn an associate degree — and build a strong foundation in engineering principles before moving on to a four-year school and specialized field of study.
