The Engineering program at Hartnell College covers the first two years of the traditional professional engineering program leading to a Bachelor’s Degree. It is nearly the same for all fields of engineering with specialization coming later in upper division coursework. The required core curriculum follows the Engineering Articulation Agreement developed by the Engineering Liaison Council (ELC) between community colleges and four-year public and private colleges and universities. This articulated agreement, commonly referred to as the Summit Agreement, states that students should be considered for admission upon completion of the engineering core curriculum and not necessarily the completion of all general education.

Upon successful completion of the Engineering program, a student should be able to:
• employ science and mathematical skills required for occupational needs.
• design a system, component, or process with supervision of a licensed engineer to meet desired needs.
• analyze engineering problems and make appropriate decisions with supervision of a licensed engineer.
• demonstrate appropriate technical communication skills (written, verbal and drawing).
• work effectively in a team, exercise initiative and function in a leadership role.
