Why should I choose this program?

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. If you plan on a career in this field, it is recommended that you should focus on mathematics classes in high school.

Almost every manufactured thing you can see — cars, bridges, telephones — involved an engineer at some point. 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. Upon completion of the Pre-Engineering Program, you can transfer to a 4-year educational institution to complete your final two years of engineering training.
