New River Community College (NRCC) offers a two-year Associate of Arts and Sciences in Engineering. This program is for students who plan to complete a baccalaureate degree program at a four-year college or who wish to explore the engineering profession before committing to a four-year program of study.
In the NRCC Engineering program students may choose the traditional engineering curriculum or engineering with a specialization in computer science. Both are comparable in length and course content to the first two years of a four-year engineering curriculum at a four-year university. The traditional engineering program will prepare students for transfer into most engineering majors, for example: Aerospace | Civil | Environmental | Computer | see more »»».
