Engineering

students working on a bridge

A combination of knowledge and experience for the next generation of engineers.

Engineering is a field that can significantly impact our future economy and quality of life. Students of HCC’s Engineering courses are getting that opportunity to change the world we live in through hands-on projects addressing real-world challenges. 

The demand for experienced and skilled engineers in our technology-centric world has expanded significantly in recent years, and will continue to grow. With the right education, you can join the in-demand workforce for electrical, mechanical, and computer engineers. At Howard Community College, you will learn from experienced faculty, with real-world industry experience, and gain hands-on project experience using the resources in HCC’s Science, Engineering, and Technology Building.

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 honors 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 in HCC’s new Science, Engineering, and Technology Building, featuring an engineering build room, a machine shop, labs for 3D printing and digital fabrication, and much more!
  • The possibility of 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.
