Engineers apply mathematical principles and those of many sciences to the solution of practical design problems. Most engineers specialize in a particular area. There are more than 25 major specialties, including aerospace, chemical, mining and metallurgical, mechanical, architectural, electrical and systems. The Pueblo Community College curriculum provides a transferable foundation for all the major branches of engineering.
The pre-engineering program at Pueblo Community College is designed for students interested in studying for the engineering profession through the community college pathway. This pathway prepares students for the completion of a two-year Associate of Science (AS) degree which 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 transfer at the junior level.
Refer to the general requirements for the Associate of Science degree listed above. Some pre-engineering courses have prerequisites of lower level classes or assessment scores. Refer to the course descriptions for specific course prerequisites.
