About the career

After transferring from MTC to a four-year engineering program, students are on their way to a rewarding career in engineering. Engineering career benefits include challenging work, avenues for expressing creativity, intellectual development, financial security, prestige and a professional work environment.

Though there are many diverse fields of engineering from aerospace to manufacturing. The five major fields are electrical, mechanical, civil, chemical and computer. Electrical engineers work with electricity in its many forms Ė from electrons to large-scale magnetic fields. In addition to designing new products, they construct, operate and maintain a wide variety of electrical systems and equipment.

Mechanical engineers are concerned with the design, development and manufacture of machines and mechanical engineering systems. The goal of a mechanical engineer is to make sure mechanical systems developed are as efficient as possible.

Civil engineers design and supervise the creation of structures. From tunnels and dams, to highways and airports, to water and sewer systems, civil engineers employ computer technologies and advanced materials to design structures that meet the needs of society.

Chemical engineers use chemistry, physics and math along with engineering tools to solve problems relating to the production and use of chemicals.

Computer engineers apply scientific theory and engineering design to use and develop new computer hardware or software.

About the program

Many students will find Midlands Technical College the ideal place to complete the first two years of a four-year, professionally oriented engineering program. In addition to the five engineering career fields listed above, MTC offers the first two years of four-year programs in Computer Science and in Computer Information Systems. MTCís Engineering Transfer program provides lower tuition, evening courses, smaller classes, preparatory courses and tutorial assistance.

Upon admission, all Engineering Transfer students are enrolled in subcategories of the Associate in Science program. While enrolled in this program, an academic advisor guides each student in completing the courses of his or her engineering major that correspond to those in the first two years of the four-year engineering program at the University of South Carolina.

Majors available in the transfer program at USC are civil, mechanical, chemical, electrical, computer, and environmental engineering as well as computer science. Upon completing the MTC Engineering Transfer program, students may transfer to USCís College of Engineering and Computing or to one of many other fouryear engineering schools in the United States. By taking as few as two additional courses, students have the option of obtaining the A.S. degree as they transfer.
