Do you want to help make the world a better place through innovative design and problem solving? Do you like to figure out how things work? If you said yes to these questions and have an aptitude for math and science, you should consider becoming an engineer!

Engineers use science and math to create useful items and processes that are safe, economical, and efficient. They design the objects that we use every day, from simple tools to high-tech devices. Engineers design the technologies needed to sustain life, such as clean water, energy, transportation systems, medical devices, and more. Engineers create systems that allow us to explore outer space, to investigate the atom, to travel far distances, and to connect with each other.

Depending on their focus, students may choose from a variety of degree and certificate options in engineering, civil mechatronics, and engineering drafting and will get hands-on training in areas such as automation, robotics, CAD, civil engineering, surveying, and more.

If you are interested in turning your ideas into real products and processes, then engineering is for you.

**This program will help you to: **

- solve basic engineering problems using math, science, and engineering principles
- perform experiments and analyze data
- develop techniques, skills, and tools necessary in engineering education and practice
- recognize the need for life-long learning
- improve written and oral communication skills
- function professionally as an individual and within teams

Physical Geology explores the processes that are shaping Earth today. It examines the formation of rocks and mineral resources, the volcanic and tectonic activity that accompany release of Earth's internal heat, and the sculpting of the planet's surface that occurs as air, water and ice move in response to gravity and energy from the Sun. Lab activities include identification of rocks and minerals, interpretation of topographic and geologic maps, and field studies of regional geologic features.

## Suggested Course Sequence

**This pathway is designed to meet transfer requirements in Electrical Engineering at
Cal Poly, SLO and earn a local AA degree in Engineering from AHC. It assumes students
are entering AHC academically ready to enroll in CHEM 150 (General Chemistry) and
MATH 181 (Calculus 1). If students are not academically ready for these courses,
it is recommended that students enroll in the prior summer term to complete prerequisite
courses (MATH 141 and CHEM 120) or see a counselor for adjustment to the plan.**
