The Engineering Department teaches college-level, transferable Engineering courses such as Introduction to Engineering, Engineering Graphics, Programming for Engineering, Engineering Statics, Electrical Circuits I as well as a choice of Engineering electives. The Engineering program prepares graduates for advancement in the workplace through the acquisition of superior science and mathematics-based problem-solving skills, and facilitates progress toward successful completion of further educational goals and/or lifelong learning experiences. The department attracts students aspiring to be future science and engineering majors and upon completion of course work students are awarded an Associate of Science Degree in Engineering. The Engineering program also provides a seamless transition from TSTC to any one of three universities (Texas A&M Kingsville, University of Texas-Tyler or University of Texas-Pan American) in which a 2+2 program has been established.
