From bridges and skyscrapers to airplanes and mechanics, engineers design, construct and supervise projects of all kinds. Engineers are highly trained to develop and oversee development and construction, using advanced math and science skills. NWCCD’s Engineering program will give you the background you need in math and engineering science to transfer into a Bachelor’s degree program nationwide to pursue advanced education in your desired specialization. The Engineering program is available at Sheridan College and Gillette College.
The field of Engineering is broad and diverse. Civil engineers are in demand to manage, repair and rebuild outdated infrastructure such as roads, bridges and dams. Environmental engineers are needed to help government agencies address environmental issues and sustainability. These challenges, along with many more, present new job opportunities for Engineers across the nation. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 20% job growth for Civil Engineers, adding an estimated 53,700 jobs from 2012-2022. The field of Environmental Engineers will add 8,100 jobs, while Petroleum Engineers will add 9,800 jobs.
Engineers design, develop, build and manage projects. Whether it’s extracting oil and gas, building a high-rise skyscraper, developing a new chemical or designing a bridge, Engineers are the backbone to numerous projects. Earning NWCCD’s Associate degree in Engineering at Sheridan College will give you the broad knowledge of math and science to transfer to a four-year program and pursue an Engineering specialty. Engineering careers include:
