Engineering - Certificate

Engineering Certificate of Achievement


Engineers design and create the future. They use the principles of math, science, and engineering to design and build new products or to develop large-scale systems such as transportation systems or a water treatment plant. Engineering problems usually involve teams of people, so engineers must work well with others and communicate effectively.

The Engineering Certificate is modeled after the statewide Engineering Transfer Preparation Certificate and offers four distinct engineering tracks. It is identical to the Engineering AS degree except all general education degree requirements is omitted.

In order to transfer to a four-year college or university, students who complete one of the certificate tracks will also have to complete the minimum admissions requirements for the intended transfer institution. Upon completion of the Engineering Certificate, students will possess the knowledge and skills required for upper-division coursework in Engineering.


Program Learning Outcomes

  • Students will analyze and interpret experimental results and/or data to make engineering problem decisions.
  • Students will use math, science, and engineering concepts to describe, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • Students will communicate the results of design and/or analysis orally and through text and graphics. Students will work effectively in teams.

To Earn this Certificate, Meet the Following Requirements
  1. Complete all required certificate courses with a C (or P) or better.
  2. Complete at least 1/3 of the program courses at Mission College to establish residency.
