Engineering

The Engineering program at College of DuPage provides the first two years of baccalaureate work, including courses in mathematics, computer programming, chemistry, physics, engineering graphics, mechanics, circuits, and general studies. Upon completion of the Associate’s Degree in Engineering Science, students transfer to baccalaureate-granting institutions, where they complete the last 2 years of their bachelor's degree in engineering.

A Bachelor of Science degree is the entry-level degree for a career in engineering. Engineering is a rewarding career, both professionally and financially. A successful engineering student must have an aptitude for mathematics and science. Graduates with engineering degrees or backgrounds are in great demand for the design and development of new products, equipment, structures and processes, and operation and management of all kinds of equipment and services. Demand for engineers continues to grow in such fields as energy development and conservation, food production, transportation, environmental improvement, health service improvement, information handling, and other social areas.

    “Luckily, being selected as a Presidential Scholar allowed me to get a high-quality education at a more than reasonable cost. There’s no telling how differently things would’ve gone for me had it not been for COD giving me this great opportunity. Being mentored by knowledgeable and experienced professors while studying alongside some of the brightest students I’ve come across has allowed me to expand my understanding of the scientific world in a way I didn’t envision before. Also, the diversity of the student body has provided me with a glimpse of what awaits me when I leave the collegiate lifestyle.”

    "I don't remember the last time that I had a professor who didn't give me life-altering advice. Professor Dave Smith helped me pick classes that will transfer to the schools I want to go to. Professor Tom Carter encouraged me to apply for scholarships."

    "The purpose of a college isn’t just to provide education to those who have resources, but to provide resources to those who want an education. No matter who you are or what your dreams, COD has something to offer.”

    “Being a part of the Honors program was a phenomenal experience. After the first semester of classes, it was nice to see familiar faces and be able to discuss material from different courses with the same core group of students. I also recommend that you get to know your professors. That’s the easiest way to stay interested in your courses, as well as to see what lies ahead in your field or other fields.”

    “COD has been very helpful in pursuing my educational goals, from my counselors helping me choose what classes to take for my major to getting help with my resume at Career Services or just asking a question at the math center in the Learning Commons,. The professors at COD are very helpful, so never be afraid to ask for help or advice. And make sure you talk to your classmates and form study groups.”

    “In high school, I started taking architecture-based classes and found that I really enjoyed them. When I was looking at college degrees, I began researching a ton on architecture, but I also really enjoyed math. The word ‘civil engineer’ started coming up a lot in my Google searches, and the more I read about it, the more I liked it.

     My high school had mentioned College of DuPage a number of times, and when I visited the College’s website, I found that they offered a number of classes for that degree.”
