WHY STUDY PRE-ENGINEERING AT NC?

Students interested in pursuing a career in Engineering should have a strong background in Math and Science. Engineers are good problem solvers, so critical thinking and attention to detail are important skills for success. An engineer also needs to be an effective communicator to work in teams and to be able to explain engineering problems and solutions to non-engineers.

 

The Navarro College Pre-Engineering program helps students focus on developing a fundamental knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics, and provides an introduction to engineering. In addition, students take other general education classes in English, communication, the social sciences and humanities in order to fulfill the core curriculum requirements.
