About Our Program

Do you wonder about how things work, how inventors invent, and where new technologies come from? If so, then you might be interested in engineering. Engineering is an exciting career filled with opportunities to solve problems and make our world a better place. The next generation of engineers will change the world in ways we can only imagine. Unlike becoming a doctor or lawyer, the path to a career in engineering only requires a bachelor's degree, which can be earned in as little as four years of college. However, solving complex problems in engineering requires high level mathematics, so students planning on a career in this field should focus on mathematics classes in high school.

Almost every manufactured thing you can see -- cars, bridges, telephones -- involved an engineer at some point. There are more than 20 different types of engineers, so what kind of engineer does what job? The most well-known types of engineers are electrical, mechanical, computer, civil, industrial, aerospace, biomedical, and robotics. Whatever type of engineering you are interested in, you can begin your journey in HFC's Pre-Engineering Program. This program includes the first two years of coursework that are common to all all types of engineering programs and which cover the first half of a 4-year undergraduate degree in engineering. In addition to math courses, students in the Pre-Engineering Program take physics and general education courses that most engineering schools require. Upon completion of the Pre-Engineering Program, successful students can transfer to a 4-year educational institution to complete their final two years of engineering training.
