Engineering (AS.ENGR) 68-79 credit hours
Engineers seem to touch every facet of our lives. Almost every manmade item that we come into contact with was designed or developed by an engineer. This career might interest you if you're strong in math and science, are creative, curious, detail-oriented, and like being part of a team.
At San Juan College, we offer an Associates of Science (AS) degree in Engineering. It's been designed to articulate with all four-year universities in New Mexico, which means that upon graduation, you can easily transfer with junior-level status. You'll be prepared to enter a Bachelors of Science (BS) program in a wide variety of disciplines such as Mechanical, Electrical, Civil, Chemical, Environmental, and Aerospace. This rigorous degree commands respect from employers and will give you a wide variety of available career choices.
Each engineering course has been monitored by New Mexico State University (NMSU) for both content and structure. The engineering program at NMSU is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET), and the faculty and staff at NMSU applied the same rigorous standards when reviewing San Juan College's reputation.
Did You Know?
Our engineering classes are always small; generally 8-12 students. Even physics classes are limited to enrollments of 25 or less. If you compare this to freshman lecture sizes of 100-300 in most large universities, you'll appreciate how personal attention from instructors is practically guaranteed at San Juan College. Furthermore, we have one of the lowest tuition costs in the country, making SJC a great place for you to get started with your Engineering degree.
