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.

COD Engineering Pathways
A pathway to guaranteed admission to the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
“Having professors who care about quality teaching and how I did in the class is very motivating. I plan to continue working with robotics as a software, computer or electrical engineer, but I can also see myself focused on any sort of embedded systems programming. After this, I would like to start my own business, focused on robotics, home automation or any artificial intelligence application.”Read Spotlight
“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.”Read Spotlight
“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. 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.”Read Spotlight

“Because College of DuPage is a two-year school, I get a lot more opportunities to gain hands-on experience. I was able to help design and build two robots and compete in competitions – the Jerry Sanders Creative Design Competition at UIUC, where we won an award for our robot, and the NASA Robotic Mining Competition at the Kennedy Space Center. Both competitions helped me gain real-life experience.”Read Spotlight
