Clark College’s engineering department has one of the largest and most affordable transfer programs in Washington, allowing students to build a solid foundation in their discipline while taking advantage of small class sizes that afford one-on-one interaction with faculty. In fact, Washington State University, Portland State University, and University of Washington actively recruit Clark students for their engineering programs because of the proven quality of the Clark students and high rate of completion at four-year universities.
Clark’s program offers students hands-on projects each quarter where they apply theory to real-world scenarios. Instructors maintain close ties with learning institutions to ensure Clark students take only those courses necessary to become junior-ready upon transfer. In addition to Washington four-year universities, Clark College engineering students also typically transfer to University of Portland, and Oregon State University. Our students also transfer to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical, and Purdue universities, and Rose Hulman Institute of Technology.
Clark College offers an Associate of Science Transfer – AST2. It provides the foundation for a four-year Bachelor of Science engineering degree program with a focus in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and engineering. Students can pursue Major Ready Pathway (MRP’s) associate degrees in:
- Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering
- Computer and Electrical Engineering
- Mechanical, Civil, and Aeronautical Engineering
- Computer Science and Engineering
Engineering students can specialize in:
Chemical/Pulp & Paper
Clubs and Programs
The Engineering and Computer Science departments also have extracurricular Associated Students of Clark College (ASCC) clubs and programs including:
- NERD (Not Even Remotely Dorky) Girls, focusing on encouraging underrepresented groups to study STEM fields
- Engineering program that holds the quarterly design competitions, tours, and student-led study sessions
- Electrical and Computer Science Club, student-led projects culminating in a formal presentation at year’s end
- Aeronautical Club and the Robotics Club, participates in NASA student led projects and national competitions.
Clark’s engineering faculty advises students individually. Once students are admitted to Clark College, they work with an engineering advisor to ensure their engineering program will provide the maximum benefit when transferring to pursue their bachelor’s degree.
