What do Engineers Do?

Engineers are problem solvers.  Engineers use their background in math, science, and engineering to solve technical problems that satisfy human needs or wants.  Engineers figure out how to design and make new products or develop large-scale systems (such as a transportation system or a water treatment plant).

Engineering problems usually involve teams of people, so engineers must work well with others and communicate effectively.

Most engineering jobs are fulfilling because engineering work tends to be important to the well being of others.  Engineering is often a “helping profession”.  Engineers create the future technology that all of us will live with.

If you want to shape your world and you like making a difference in peoples’ lives – an engineering major could be the perfect academic program for you!


Why Study Engineering at Mission College?

There are over 25 engineering specialties, with more added each year.  Many new areas bridge gaps between more established majors.  For example, Mechatronics combines electrical, mechanical, and software engineering. 

Mission College is a great place to begin most engineering programs.

Mission College is an accredited two-year California Community College.  We offer students the lower division coursework they will need for the majority of engineering majors.  Students from Mission College transfer to four-year baccalaureate-granting schools after completing their lower division coursework.  This process takes most students two to three years.
