Why Study Engineering Science?

Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop solutions to technical problems, and their work is the link between scientific discoveries and commercial applications. Starting salaries are among the highest of all college graduates, and employment outlooks are favorable due to growing demand for qualified engineers. Engineering positions are in aerospace, agriculture, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer hardware and software, electrical, environmental, health and safety, electronics, marine/naval, mechanical, mining and geological, petroleum, nuclear, and even law or medicine.

With a combination of liberal arts and general education, plus a rigorous concentration in mathematics, physics, chemistry and basic engineering courses, RCC’s program thoroughly prepares students for transfer to four-year colleges.
