The Engineering program at College of DuPage provides the first two years of baccalaureate work, including mathematics courses through calculus and differential equations, computer programming, chemistry, physics, engineering graphics, mechanics, circuits and general studies. Students generally transfer to baccalaureate-granting institutions, where they study for a bachelor's degree in engineering that prepares them for professional registration.

Most graduates of the Engineering Technology program also transfer to baccalaureate-granting institutions. Although the mathematics and science requirements are not as rigorous for engineering technology as compared to engineering, facility in these areas is a requirement for success. Mathematics through the second calculus course is a minimum for engineering technology programs.
