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.
