The Engineering Program educates students in the design, development, and construction monitoring of facilities such as roadway, water supply, and control systems that affect every aspect of daily life. Students gain a sound knowledge of the fundamental principles and related issues of engineering through several one-year certificate and two-year degree options. One may enter the workforce as a technician or continue their education at an ABET-accredited institution depending upon the degree completed. In addition, several courses are offered on a continuing education basis to meet individual needs. Current technical coursework is based largely upon civil engineering and includes hands-on training. The engineering curriculum is reviewed by an advisory board composed of local and regional industry members.

Mission

Our mission is to provide quality instruction in both engineering principle and technology and prepare students to meet the needs of industry.

Program Outcomes

  • Provide a sound knowledge in the fundamental principles of engineering to either enter the work force or be prepared to transfer to and complete training in a baccalaureate program.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem solving skills that can be applied to a wide range of problems, both technical and non-technical.
  • Provide the skills necessary for the practice of engineering technology.
  • Provide a well-balanced educational experience that will foster communication skills, appreciation of social values, and an understanding of the social implications of technology.
  • Remain technically current and responsive to the changing needs of society.

Degree Options

Students may earn an Associate in Applied Arts and Sciences Degree in Engineering Technology. One-year certificate options include Engineering Graphics and Surveying. These options allow students the freedom to pursue careers after either one or two years of training.

Students may also earn an Associate in Science Degree-Option II (Engineering) which is designed to prepare students to continue their education at an ABET-accredited institution. Please consult with an adviser at WWCC and one's intended transfer institution to determine an appropriate education plan. WWCC has aligned their program with many universities, including, but not limited to Washington State University, Walla Walla University, and University of Idaho.
