Engineer Your Own Success
From designing the next robotic vacuum, to developing technologies that will enable humans to survive on Mars, engineers are the link between scientific discovery and the practical application of those discoveries to the needs of society. Engineers are found in every industry, as an engineer, you will explore and solve society’s technological problems through innovation and creative thinking.
By starting your engineering education at MWCC, you will be taking a solid first step towards your own success. Your engineering associates degree from the Mount gives you the ability to transfer to a four-year school where you can specialize in one of the major disciplines of engineering, such as aerospace, bio-tech, environmental, or mechanical.
Transfer to a 4-year College or University
You will save thousands by starting your Engineering and Physics degree at MWCC. You will be able to transfer seamlessly upon graduation into one of many Engineering and Physics Bachelor’s degree programs. Our program is based on STEM core requirements and MassTransfer benefits so that you will enter as a junior at a four-year institution after transferring from MWCC.
Minimize Cost, Maximize Value
Invest the first two years of your degree at the Mount and receive a high quality, affordable education to begin your engineering education. In this region, we are the least expensive college to get your basic math and science classes to get you started before transferring to a 4-year college or university.
You will be taught by expert, university-caliber faculty who will know your name, want you to succeed, and support you through the challenging course material in small-size classes.
Learn the Language of Engineering
As a Physics and Engineering student, you will learn engineering skills and terminology from higher math and science courses, including:
- Physics for Engineering & Science
- Computer Assisted Design
Valuable hands-on experience during lab time in many of your classes will provide you with the training and knowledge you will need as you further your education.
