Pathway to Engineering

Begin your Engineering Pathway at RRCC

Engineering Transfer 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.

See more about Engineering Pathway at RRCC and Engineering Transfer Courses.

Transfer program to Colorado School of Mines

RRCC has an articulated transfer agreement with Colorado School of Mines where students who complete all of the prescribed RRCC coursework and meet minimum cumulative grade point average and course grades may transfer the prescribed coursework upon admission to Colorado School of Mines. This program may take two or more years to complete at RRCC prior to transfer. While at RRCC, students may complete EGT 140 IDEA at RRCC and transfer it in for EPICS I at Mines. See the Colorado School of Mines Transfer Guide.

Engineering Pathway Program to University of Colorado - Boulder

Thanks to an integrated partnership, the RRCC to CU-Boulder pathway can be attractive to both community college students, as well as qualified high school students taking concurrent enrollment classes with RRCC. CU-Boulder Engineering and RRCC have designed this pathway to support a more streamlined transition between colleges and give you a detailed view of what your academic plan will look like. Guides to CU's Engineering degrees can be found on the Red Rocks to CU-Boulder Engineering Pathway website. General Colorado community college information into CU Engineering can be found here

Additionally, EGT 140 – IDEA: Introduction to Design and Engineering Applications transfers directly to CU Engineering as Engineering Projects (GEEN 1400).  

Research and Internships in STEM

RRCC Summer Research Internships in STEM is a program funded by the National Science Foundation to support low-income and/or first-generation community college students in STEM. Learn more about this program and other local research and internship opportunities.

Innovation in the IDEA Lab

In the IDEA Lab, students propose STEM-based solutions to real world design and technical challenges. Gain skills in the design-process, take a workshop in 3D printing, electronics, soldering and more, and experience working with a real world client.
