The Engineering program at College of the Desert:

  • Provides students with the fundamental knowledge and skills in mathematics, science, and engineering to prepare them for successful transfer to four-year engineering programs and complete their degree in a timely manner.

  • Produces engineering transfer students that recognize the importance of and engage in life-long learning, as they pursue their four-year degrees and perhaps a graduate level education while at the same time encourage others to have this same motivation.

  • Produces students that have an understanding of ethical responsibility and service toward their peers, employers, and society and follow these precepts in their daily lives.

Upon completion of this program students will be able to:

  • Analyze real world engineering problems and apply appropriate theory to solve them.

  • Acquire the skills necessary to interact and communicate in an effective manner in a technical environment such as Engineering.

  • Demonstrates the skills relevant to the engineering field.

  • Apply and transfer to an engineering program at a four-year school.
