PCC offers freshman and sophomore courses in chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, industrial, manufacturing and mechanical engineering tailored to the needs of students transferring to Oregon State University, Oregon Institute of Technology, Portland State University, University of Portland, and Washington State University. Students new to this program must complete an application and receive departmental advising prior to registration. We also prepare students interested in other disciplines or those planning to transfer to out-of-state schools.

University Transfer

Portland Community College offers freshman and sophomore course work in chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, industrial, manufacturing and mechanical engineering tailored to the needs of students transferring to a four year institution.

Why PCC?

Most people know that community college costs are low and that classes are offered at convenient times and locations, but many aren't aware of the high quality of our instructors, labs, and student support services.

In additional to their academic backgrounds, all our engineering faculty have practical experience working for high tech manufacturers, consulting engineering firms, government agencies, and other "real world" employers. And that brings the "real world" right into the classroom. We also offer outstanding laboratory facilities and a wide array of student support services to help our students succeed.

Scholarships

Please check the Scholarships website for information on many more private and public scholarships.
