Engineering Transfer Program at Las Positas College has been in existence
since 1995. This accredited and articulated program provides lower division
engineering, mathematics, and science courses to prepare students to transfer
to a four year institution to pursue an engineering degree. By completing
the equivalent of a two-year lower-division program of courses, engineering
students will be able to transfer to virtually any four-year college or
university within California, or in other states.
The engineering career field is at once challenging, rewarding, and dynamic. As a profession, Engineering changes constantly, and impacts virtually every aspect of our lives. Opportunities for students in this career field are endless. Engineering disciplines, or branches, include Aeronautical, Environmental, Civil, Mechanical, Industrial, Electrical, Optical, Computer, and Chemical Engineering. These engineering branches are represented at many four-year universities within California (see links for more information). The Las Positas College Career Center, Transfer Center or your counselor can provide you additional information.
The following list outlines the courses required for an Engineering major at Las Positas College. Although this list shows only two years, it is not uncommon for transfer students to take 3 or more years to complete the courses listed below. To make sure that you have competed the appropriate courses for transfer to a specific college make sure to schedule an appointment with a Las Positas counselor and check how these courses transfer to any college or university in California, including UCs and CSUs. Another excellent resource for transfer information is the ASSIST website, which provides specific course-to-course articulation information between any California community college and any 4-year California university.
**MATH 7, MATH 10 and PHYS 8D may not be required by some universities for specific engineering majors. Check www.assist.org for information specific to a given major and a given transfer university.
***MATH 3 may be taken concurrently with PHYS 8B
