The Engineering interest area at Kirkwood is part of the Liberal Arts Program. You will work closely with the Advising and Transfer Center and engineering faculty when deciding on which classes to take. Our engineering faculty are dedicated and experienced professionals who can also be a great resource when making transfer decisions and planning for a career in engineering. They have years of valuable experience studying and researching within the engineering field and working with students just like you.
Course requirements include specialized engineering classes, as well as foreign language, humanities, math and science. With many options to choose from, the advising process will also help you figure out a plan that fits you.
