Engineering Welcome

If you’re looking for an opportunity to use your interests in math and
science to solve challenging problems, then engineering might be for you! 
In the Engineering department at EAC, the classes are small so you can
really participate in conversations with the instructor. You’ll also get
valuable hands-on experience in many areas in our program.

We’ve designed our engineering program to dovetail perfectly with
Arizona’s three major universities, so you won’t have wasted
credits when you transfer. We hope to see you soon!

- Tom Palmer, Engineering Department Head

Engineering Experience

“The Intro to Engineering course allowed students to explore the different types of engineering and see which one you gravitate towards. Dr. Bailey has been really helpful in counseling me on engineering schools and how to structure my schedule here at EAC so I will be able to transfer my credits to another college. I will graduate in May and am hoping to continue to study chemical engineering.”

- Brady Payne

A Firm Foundation

“I took Intro to Engineering,
and a geology class, and the
instructors noticed. They
cornered me and said, ‘You
have a knack for doing things
with rocks, why don’t you
try mining engineering?’
That’s the thing about EAC …
the teachers are really there
for the students. They are so
willing to help, open and friendly.
Now I am hoping to transfer to
the U of A as a mining engineer.”

- Kenyon Burrell


Engineering Transfer and Careers

Your Career is About to Take Off

Engineers provide the link between the scientific discoveries and the commercial applications that people need. They apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop solutions to technical problems.

There are many different types of engineers. Most engineering baccalaureate degrees are granted in electrical and electronics engineering, mechanical engineering, and civil engineering. However, engineers trained in one branch may work in related branches. Starting salaries for engineers are among the highest of all college graduates.

EAC has an NSF STEP grant (Grant no. 0856635) valued at over $95,000 through August 2014. The grant involves partnering with Arizona State University’s METS (Motivating Engineering Transfer Students) program. The grant also provides for scholarships for EAC engineering students, as well as visits to the ASU campus.

Average Salaries:

Civil Engineer

$74,600

Mechanical Engineer

$74,920

Industrial Engineer

$73,820

Electrical Engineer

$82,160

Electronics Engineer

$86,370


Engineering Curriculum

A Well Structured Program You Can Build On

Our program offers most of the engineering courses that students of various engineering disciplines typically take in the first two years of study including: statics, dynamics, programming, mechanics of materials, thermodynamics, surveying and mining. See Dr. Bailey for advice on which of these would be best for you.

Engineering (AS)
This Associate of Science degree provides two years of training in the required background mathematics and sciences towards a bachelor’s degree. Please consult the official transfer guide to tailor your curriculum, since degree requirements differ between universities.

Today’s professional engineer requires a minimum of four years of highly theoretical and specialized training. Very often this training requires more than four regular college years; that is, either attendance for several summer terms or an additional fifth year, before you may qualify for the bachelor’s degree.
