2004 - 2005 Catalog

Programs of Study

Engineering

Students with an interest in engineering can earn an associate degree and develop knowledge and skills necessary to transfer to a four-year degree program. Students completing a bachelor's degree, a master's degree, or a PhD have a variety of career options including self-employment, employment in industry, teaching, and university research. Advances in science and technology have led to whole new branches of engineering. In addition to the traditional branches of civil, mechanical, industrial, electrical/electronic and chemical engineering, whole new interdisciplinary fields have evolved such as biomedical engineering.

ASSIST is a computerized student-transfer information system that can be accessed over the World Wide Web. It displays reports of how course credits earned at one California college or university can be applied when transferred to another. ASSIST is the official repository of articulation for California’s colleges and universities and therefore provides the most accurate and up-to-date information available about student transfer in California.
ASSIST is available at www.assist.org.
