The engineering career field is at once challenging, rewarding, and dynamic. As a profession, Engineering changes constantly, and impacts virtually every aspect of our lives. Opportunities for students in this career field are endless. Engineering disciplines, or branches, include Aeronautical, Environmental, Civil, Mechanical, Industrial, Electrical, Optical, Computer, and Chemical Engineering. These engineering branches are represented at many four-year universities within California (see links for more information). The Las Positas College Career Center, Transfer Center or your counselor can provide you additional information.

Las Positas College offers an Engineering Transfer Program which prepares students to transfer into an Engineering major at a four-year institution. The Engineering Transfer Program includes the required lower division courses similar to, if not identical to, the courses offered at four year institutions.

Las Positas College also offers an Engineering Technology program, which leads to an Associate in Science - Engineering Technology degree.
