Engineering Academy Transfer Pathways

Begin your Engineering Pathway at RRCC

The Engineering Academy is a preparatory curriculum for students who plan to continue their education at a four-year college or university and complete a degree in one of the professional engineering fields, such as Aerospace, Biological, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Geological, or Mechanical Engineering.

Steps for successful transfer

1.  Start early! Meet with an RRCC advisor to plan your classes before beginning this area of study. 

2.  Plan your degree. Preview four-year college or university transfer program to learn about the specifics of your transfer degree and choose courses accordingly.

3.  Be attentive to deadlines. Meet with an advisor at your transfer school to learn about application deadlines, rolling admissions, and scholarship opportunities.

4.  Study hard. Take advantage of small class sizes, faculty office hours, tutoring and study help to keep your GPA at 3.0 or higher.

Engineering Transfer courses: Math and Science

These courses are suggested for transfer. Consult the transfer program at the four-year college or university for specific transfer eligibility. If transferring to Colorado School of Mines, consult the RRCC to Mines Transfer Agreement.
