Engineering

Department Description
Engineering appeals to students who enjoy the challenge of learning how things work and using this knowledge to improve the world in which they live. They are creative thinkers who enjoy design activities and building things.

Department Learning Outcomes
Students will be able to:
*Accurately use mathematical functions that apply to Engineering problems.
*Use graphing technologies to help explain physical phenomena related to engineering challenges and discuss them orally or in writing.
*Correctly apply the principals governing physical phenomena to solve engineering problems collaboratively.

Special Course Requirements
A strong background in math is required for successful completion of second-year engineering courses.

Transfer Opportunities
Central Lakes College offers in Associates of Science (AS) Degree that is designed to lead to a bachelor's degree in Engineering at a four-year university.  These credits transfer in full through articulation agreements with all area engineering schools.  CLC students most often transfer to the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis or Duluth), North Dakota State University (NDSU), the University of North Dakota (UND), Mankato State University (MSU), and St. Cloud State University (SCSU).

Employment Opportunities
Engineering degrees are among the most highly paid of Bachelor’s degrees and span a very large number of fields. The most common engineering fields include Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Chemical Engineering. Other fields include, but are not limited to, Aerospace Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Industrial Engineering. Engineers commonly transition to management positions in business and industry, start their own companies, or use their engineering degree to facilitate movement into other professional fields such as patent law and medicine.
