As an engineer, you’ll use principles of science and math to develop solutions to technical problems in a wide variety of engineering fields. We offer the only AS degree program in Engineering within the college’s 14-county service area.
This program provides you with the first two years of study toward a Bachelor of Science degree at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (MS&T) in Rolla. At SFCC you will take basic courses common to most engineering disciplines and continue in specialized areas (electrical, mechanical, civil, chemical, etc.) at MS&T.
SFCC also has transfer agreements with other colleges and universities. However, engineering programs at other colleges differ slightly, so we strongly suggest you work closely with both SFCC and the receiving institution to map out your four-semester degree plan.
To be successful as an engineer, you should have strong analytical, problem-solving and communication skills; have strong math skills and excellent technical knowledge; be able to think logically; show attention to detail and safety awareness; be creative; and be a team player.
SFCC’s AS degree in Engineering can lay the foundation for a wide variety of engineering fields such as aerospace, agricultural, architectural, biomedical, chemical, civil, construction, electrical, environmental, industrial manufacturing, marine, materials, mechanical, mining, network, nuclear, petroleum, process, project, quality, safety, sales, software, solar, structural, and systems. Wages in Missouri for engineers with bachelor’s degrees range from about $47,400 to $121,500, depending on the specific field. Projected job openings also depend on your specific field.
