Engineering is an exacting applied science requiring a broad background of analytical skills. Many types of engineering require specialization at the junior and senior levels. This program of study gives entering students a general, transferable background in mathematics and engineering science necessary for later specialization.
The engineering program is designed to provide the first two years of a four-year engineering program. After completion of the first two years, students may transfer to a four-year institution and complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree in the field of engineering.
All courses listed below containing an “ES” prefix transfer to the University of Wyoming. Students planning to transfer to out-of-state, four-year institutions are encouraged to contact such institutions about the transferability of LCCC courses. Many of the second-year engineering courses are offered infrequently.
When the second-year engineering courses are not offered, the first-year courses and general education courses from the second year are recommended. Contact the engineering advisor for additional information.
Career opportunities in engineering are abundant, and national starting salaries for applicants with bachelor’s degrees average $42,000 to $58,000.
- Engineering and physics classes are taught in LCCC’s modern Science Center, which includes bright, well-equipped laboratories and ample opportunities to use computers for scientific or engineering applications.
- LCCC engineering faculty members are active in professional organizations and community and school outreach activities. Students find the faculty approachable, knowledgeable, helpful and highly enthusiastic.
- Students receive extensive hands-on laboratory experience through activities employing diverse scientific instrumentation.
- LCCC students have a good transfer rate to, and are very successful in, the University of Wyoming’s engineering departments.
