Build a foundation for a career designing technologies, systems or processes that solve problems related to living things, chemicals, materials or energy.
Are you a problem solver with a strong curiosity about math and science? Do you often wonder how things work? If so, engineering may be the career path for you.
In this program, you’ll complete the requirements of the freshman and sophomore years of most engineering programs at a university. You’ll study areas such as calculus, physics and chemistry, but you’ll also take courses in English, social sciences and humanities. This pre-major program is designed to prepare you to transfer at the junior level into an engineering program at a four-year college or university.
From the ocean floors to outer space, from as small as the atomic level to as large as the tallest skyscrapers, engineers work on in a variety of settings on a range of challenging projects. Whether you want to be a civil engineer, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer or any other type of engineer, this program will help prepare you to design and develop solutions to some of the world’s most complex problems.
SFCC offers extra support and career development to students pursuing a degree in science, technology, engineering, or math programs through MESA (Math, Engineering, Science Achievement).
You and your advisor will use this program map as a starting point in creating your own personal education plan, customized to your needs. No matter what level of math you’re starting with, you will have support all along your journey. We meet you where you are and help you reach your goals. We have a place for you!

Greg Cripe PhD Applied Mathematics, MS Computer Science, MA Math, BA Math, BM Music Performance
Greg comes to SFCC from Indiana where he studied Tuba and taught scenic design techniques in Opera. He taught math in high school in Swaziland during a stint in the Peace Corps before traveling through the states and ending up in the Northwest. He still enjoys adventures and hopes you will visit him in the math center during your adventure in your math courses.
All SFCC classes that students take to obtain an Associate in Science Transfer Track 2 (AS-T 2) degree in engineering are transferable. We coordinate twice each year to ensure compatibility with the in-state university engineering programs. After completing the engineering program at SFCC, students go on to Gonzaga University, Eastern Washington University, Washington State University, and other local and national engineering schools.
