  • Catalog Year 2018-2019

    The Engineering Transfer curriculum offered at Mt. Hood Community College is designed to closely follow the pre-engineering program at regional universities and to meet the requirements for an Associate of Science degree. This course plan is tailored for civil and mechanical engineering majors. However, it may be modified to meet the needs of students transferring into other disciplines of engineering. In all cases, the student should meet with his or her adviser to create an educational plan that meets his or her specific needs.

    Curricular Outcomes

    At the completion of this curriculum, students should be able to:

    • Apply mathematics, science and engineering skills
    • Design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret data
    • Design a system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints
    • Function on multidisciplinary teams
    • Identify, formulate and solve engineering problems
    • Describe professional and ethical responsibility

    The MHCC curriculum has entry-level expectations of students for skills in reading, writing and mathematics.

    Note: This plan is specifically designed for transfer to a four-year institution and is not intended for students who seek direct entry into the job market after completion of an associate degree.

    MHCC’s Engineering Technology program offers an AAS program intended for direct entry to the engineering technician job market.
