Engineering Transfer Program

To better respond to the needs of our students and our community, Las Positas College announces its Engineering Transfer Program. This accredited and articulated program will provide lower division engineering, mathematics, and science courses to prepare students to transfer to a four year institution to pursue an engineering degree. The engineering career field is at once challenging, rewarding, and dynamic. Engineering, as a profession, is going through a period of rapid change and growth, impacting virtually every aspect of our lives. Opportunities for students in this career field are endless.

A career in engineering offers many options. Aeronautical, Mechanical, Industrial, Electrical, Optical, Computer, Biological Systems, and Chemical Engineering are just some of the many engineering specialties offered by the California State University or the University of California. The Las Positas College Career/Transfer Center or your counselor can provide you additional information. Las Positas College is now offering, on our campus, a re-energized Engineering Transfer Program delivering the engineering courses you'll need to transfer to a four year institution.

Here are the general transfer requirements for Engineering. However, to make sure that you have competed the appropriate courses for transfer to a specific college make sure to schedule an appointment with a Las Positas counselor and check how these courses transfer to any college or university in California, including UCs and CSUs.
