Get hands-on with a degree in mechanical engineering from Collin College. Mechanical
engineers design and oversee the manufacture of machines people use every day – engines,
equipment, simple machines and more – ensuring that they can withstand the stresses
applied to them. Learn how to build things from the ground up with enough knowledge
and care to be sure it will work.
Collin College's Mechanical Engineering field of study (FOS) program will prepare you for baccalaureate studies at a four-year university with a strong foundation of math and science, as well as introductory courses designed to build your engineering knowledge base.
A Field of Study is a set of courses that will transfer and apply to a corresponding bachelor’s - level degree at a Texas college or university. Both the Field of Study and the Core Curriculum courses are transferrable for full academic credit to any public college or university in Texas. Students who complete the Field of Study block of courses will earn a certificate in that Field of Study.
Did you know that you can also earn an AA or AS degree in addition to the Field of Study certificate? Contact an academic advisor today to learn more about how to develop an educational plan that is right for you.
