The Engineering Program is a rigorous associate of science (A.S.) transfer program for serious students. It is designed to provide the first two years of education for students planning to transfer into an upper division engineering program at a four-year college or university. The program provides a strong foundation in the physical sciences, engineering science, and mathematics. It prepares students for more specialized courses that are taken in the third and fourth years of an engineering program.
Engineering courses at HCC are taught by faculty with extensive professional experience in the engineering field. While completing the Engineering Program, students will have the opportunity to learn and work with the same state-of-the-art engineering modeling and computation software packages that are the standard in many industries, such as PTC CREO and MATLAB.
In addition, HCC engineering students have opportunities to distinguish themselves at prospective four-year-colleges and universities by participating in undergraduate design and research projects such as the Balloon Payload Program in conjunction with Maryland Space Grant Consortium and the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park.
