Engineering Program Information

Can you visualize better ways of approaching problems? Do you enjoy designing and building things to solve those problems? If you can relate to this way of thinking, consider NMC’s Engineering Program, which emphasizes the tools and theories that provide background for all engineering fields.

From trigonometry to thermodynamics, NMC offers the math, science, and engineering fundamentals for students to get started on a career in engineering. Through these courses, students can build the foundation needed to transfer to many four-year engineering programs at the junior level. In doing so, students enjoy small class sizes and individualized instructor interaction; all at a cost far below four-year institutions. Common transfer partners include Michigan Technological University, the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, and Western Michigan University.
