Engineering Transfer University Partnerships

Colorado School of Mines

Thanks to an innovative partnership, students can begin their academic career at Red Rocks and transfer to Colorado School of Mines to complete their undergraduate degree. This transfer agreement allows students to enjoy the benefits of an exceptional community college and the rigor and reputation of a widely respected four-year university. See more about transfer from RRCC to Mines.

University of Colorado - Boulder

Students who begin at Red Rocks Community College can transfer directly to CU Boulder to finish their degree in engineering. Thanks to an integrated partnership, this pathway can be attractive to both community college students, as well as qualified high school students taking concurrent enrollment classes with RRCC.

Gain Engineering Skills in the IDEA Lab

The IDEA Lab is the center of engineering activities. The Lab offers a makerspace with 3D printers, tools, and prototyping equipment, as well as workshops ranging from soldering to programming Raspberry Pis. Students are also involved in real world projects such as building land survey drones, designing water systems for communities in Africa, or participating in STEM outreach at local schools. Any RRCC student can become an IDEA Lab user - it is free and required.
