Engineers design our world, from wind turbines and bridges to DNA sequencing technology and computer chips.
As a liberal arts college, Colorado College does not have an engineering school, but CC students can become engineers in several ways. There are three main paths into a career in engineering: (1) The 3-2 and (2) 4-2 cooperative programs with Columbia University, University of Southern California, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), and (3) a BA from CC followed by graduate school in engineering. CC students from several different majors have followed each of these paths, and are now pursuing successful engineering fields. Each has advantages and disadvantages; which is best for you depends on your skills and interests. To learn more look at our Paths into Engineering page.
