Engineering is a profession that integrates science and mathematics with design and laboratory study. It is and will continue to be the profession upon which the United States depends for its growth and ability to compete in world markets.
“Engineering offers more career options than any other discipline. It’s a profession that can take you from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space, from within the microscopic structures of the human cell to the top of the tallest skyscrapers. Whether it’s cell phones, digital cameras, DVDs, or facial recognition devices that can pick out a terrorist in a crowded football stadium, engineers are behind almost all of today’s exciting technology. Engineers are problem solvers who search for quicker, better, and less expensive ways to use the forces and materials of nature to meet today’s challenges.”1
At Brookdale Community College, the Engineering program parallels the first two years of the four-year engineering curriculum of most engineering schools throughout the country. The program leads to an Associate in Science degree in Engineering and transfers to most engineering schools.
There are five major areas of study:
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Industrial Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
