What will I learn?

PCC’s Pre-Engineering program is designed for students interested in studying the engineering profession through the community college pathway. The PCC curriculum provides you a transferable foundation for all of the major branches of engineering.

PCC’s Associate of Science (AS) degree meets the requirements of the statewide engineering articulation agreement with Colorado’s four-year engineering bachelor’s degree programs. Completion of the associate degree completes the first two years of an engineering bachelor’s degree and guarantees that you will transfer as a junior to a four-year school.
