Educating today’s engineering students to be tomorrow’s problem-solvers.

Engineering is a field that can significantly impact our future economy and quality of life. Students of HCC’s Engineering courses in Maryland are getting that opportunity to change the world we live in through hands-on projects addressing real-world challenges. These group projects provide students with valuable experiential learning of electrical and mechanical systems and of the engineering design process; development and application of technical skills, project management, and teamwork; and exposure to the roles and interdependencies of electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering disciplines.

Additional distinctive learning opportunities for engineering students include:

  • A weekly Engineering Seminar, bringing all students together for presentations from local professionals, peer-to-peer networking, teambuilding activities, and competitions
  • Academic enrichment opportunities with the STEM Learning Community or in the selective admission STEM Scholars honor program
  • Campus student clubs, including the Engineering Club, the Amateur Radio Club, and HCC chapters of the Society of Women Engineers, and of the National Society of Black Engineers
  • Industry partnerships and resources for professional development and community outreach
  • Innovative and evolving curriculum to keep pace with job growth in emerging disciplines, such as bioengineering
  • Enhanced opportunities for study and discovery with the 2017 opening of HCC’s new Science, Engineering, and Technology Building under construction, featuring an engineering build room, and labs for 3D printing and digital fabrication
  • The Associate of Science in Engineering with both an ASE Electrical Engineering transfer degree and an ASE Computer Engineering transfer degree as well as an AA degree in Engineering designed to transfer to most types of engineering science programs including: mechanical, civil, aerospace, computer, electrical, fire protection and materials engineering. Part of a statewide articulation agreement developed by two and four year college and universities in Maryland.
