What will I learn?

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 design 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.

Classes 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, dynamics
  • Computer science
  • Chemistry 
  • Communications, humanities and social science requirements

Why JCCC?

The courses you take at JCCC cover the same material at the same level of rigor as at four-year engineering 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.

Math and science requirements for engineering students are challenging. JCCC provides free tutoring on campus at the Math Resource Center and Science Resource Center. The centers are available to students seven days a week.
