Program Description: Ventura College offers a two-year lower-division engineering program that prepares students for transfer to colleges and universities in California and across the nation. The first two years of the engineering curriculum, at most colleges and universities, are similar with specialization commencing in the junior year. Completion of the lower division core courses listed is essential in facilitating progress as an upper division engineering transfer student. It is important that engineering students meet with an engineering transfer counselor and/or the Engineering Department for specific requirements for transfer.
