​Program Information

Student Goals 

  • To acquire the knowledge, skills, and course credits for most of the first two years toward a baccalaureate degree in engineering. The remaining course work can be completed at one of the state universities in Arizona or out-of-state.
  • To upgrade skills or to prepare for transfer on a full-time or part-time basis.

Acquired Skills

  • Gain effective verbal and written communications skills that enable the student to work in a team environment.
  • Gain computer applications skills
  • Gain science and mathematics skills. Engineering is the application of these skills to the solution of practical problems.
  • Gain teaming skills required in today's engineering work environment.
  • Gain introductory engineering design experience.

Career Challenges for Engineers

Engineers work in leadership roles to provide practical solutions to many problems facing society. Examples of career challenges include:

  • Increased demand of high quality and safety in products
  • International competition requiring rapid advancement of technology and lower costs.
  • Disposal of waste without polluting the environment.
  • Safe disposal and/or recycling of worn-out or obsolete products
  • Conservation of dwindling natural resources

​University Transfer

Students pursuing a degree in Engineering can take up to 64 transferred credits to any of the 3 major Universities in Arizona.

It is recommended that students meet with a CGCC advisor to ensure that the appropriate courses for transfer are met.

AZ Transfer is a state resource with up-to-date lists of courses transferable between the state schools.
