Engineering is a profession where you are challenged to develop creative solutions to problems related to every aspect of life, through the application of mathematical and scientific principles, experience, creativity, and common sense.
Clark College offers the first two years of study of a four-year engineering degree program. The first two years main focus of study are preparatory courses in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and basic engineering courses required by the student's engineering field and transfer school.
Those who study engineering today can look forward to a rewarding career where they experience personal achievement, exercise their curiosity, give service to society, and realize financial success.
Engineers work on a wide variety of projects: basic and applied research, product development, design and modification of processes and equipment, and plant operation. Some enter sales, marketing, management, consulting, government agencies, or teaching.
Engineers plan, develop, and oversee the research and design of construction and manufacturing projects. They work on teams with engineers from other fields to design integrated systems and solve complex technical problems. Engineers also develop and use computer-aided design programs to simulate and test products and systems.
Engineers can specialize in many fields including:
- Chemical/Pulp & Paper
There are many other interdisciplinary fields including architecture, law, sports, human factors and acoustics.
