Learn about engineering transfer program at info sessions

by Public Relations and Marketing | Published Jan 27, 2017

 

The engineering transfer department will hold information sessions on Tuesday, Feb. 7 and Thursday, March 9 for prospective students interested in taking the first two years of a Bachelor of Science in engineering degree at CLC.

Both sessions will be offered at 7 p.m. in Room C106 on CLC’s Grayslake Campus, 19351 W. Washington St. in Grayslake. Parents are also invited to attend.

The 30-minute sessions will include information about the CLC engineering transfer curriculum, the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC) College of Engineering Pathways program (which offers guaranteed admission after successfully completing two years at CLC), the National Science Foundation Scholarship program, Engineering Club, academic support services and more.

Engineering professor Twardock and student with 3D printerThe first two years of any engineering curriculum is common, allowing “pre-engineering” majors to start at CLC and transfer to any engineering field and enjoy considerable savings, according to Professor Rob Twardock, engineering transfer department chair (shown at right with a recent graduate now attending UIUC).

“With the average four-year public university tuition at $15,000-20,000 per year, plus room and board of $10,000-12,000, engineering students can save about $25,000 per year by starting at CLC. We offer small classes taught by professors who are professional engineers,” he said.

The deadline to apply to the UIUC Engineering Pathways program for Fall Semester 2017 is March 15. View the online application at https://forms.clcillinois.edu/egr/pathways-application-form

The deadline for preferred consideration for the NSF Scholars program is April 15. The application is at http://www.clcillinois.edu/paying-for-college/financial-aid/types-of-financial-aid/clc-foundation-scholarships.
