Engineering: Computer/Electrical

Prepare for a future in software or hardware design, aerospace, robotics and other industries that rely on advanced computers and electronic systems.

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.

These dollar amounts reflect the total cost of completing the program. More details
All dollar figures appearing below reflect the total cost of completing the program described by the Typical Student Schedule located on this web page, which are for the current graduation requirements of this program. Exact totals may vary depending on the catalog requirements you are following, if you have transferred in courses, or if you have been granted substitutions.

Tuition, program fees, and course fees are for the current academic year, as approved by the Community Colleges of Spokane Board of Trustees. Tuition and fees are subject to change by the Washington State Legislature and/or the Community Colleges of Spokane Board of Trustees.

Resident tuition is what Washington residents pay. Non-Resident tuition is what out-of-state students pay. International tuition is what out-of-country students pay. For clarification on residency, see Determining your Residency Status.

Avg. Books & Supplies: $942 for an academic year.
The cost for books and course-related material is an estimate based on the Washington Financial Aid Association’s annual student budget. The actual cost of textbooks and course-related supplies can vary widely depending on your program of study and the options you have for obtaining textbooks and other course material.

Program Fees are one-time costs required for the program that are not included in course fees or in tuition. These fees include things like tools, equipment, and uniforms. Only a few programs have program fees.

Max. Course Fees cover the cost of special equipment and materials needed to complete coursework. These fees are not included in tuition. Not all courses have fees and the actual costs that a student pays will vary depending on the courses taken.

Institutional Fees cover a variety of services for students, such as class registration, technology support, health clinic services, bus passes, and more. Most of these fees are instituted after a vote by the student body.
